  • 2 Cups  sliced leeks
  • 6 Cups  chicken broth

Soup! It is cold here. And soup is what I want. Pretty much every day. I loved this soup. The bacon and cheese and potatoes are so comforting. Kids will love this soup as well. Serve with some crusty bread and you have an easy meal.


Place the potatoes, leeks, broth, garlic powder, and ½ cup of the bacon into a slow cooker. Slowly whisk in the flour, 1 tablespoon at a time. Cover and cook on low until the potatoes are tender, about 4-6 hours. Slowly stir in the cheese, a little at a time. Season with plenty of salt and pepper and garnish with the remaining bacon and extra cheese, if desired.
