This hearty Potato Leek Soup with Bacon and Chives is perfect for any time of the year, and most especially wonderful once the cold weather sets in! Since we have a long winter here in Minnesota, it is one of our soups that we love to curl up with a hot bowl filled to the brim with this creamy, delicious soup while we watch one of the typical winter storms pass through.

If you’ve never tried leek before, this is a perfect recipe to try it out with for the first time! The leek adds some onion flavor, but with a different consistency (if you’re one of those people that doesn’t like to bite into onion, but love the flavor of onion, then you should really love using leek!). The leek texture in this soup combines beautifully with potatoes, and is then made even creamier by adding the heavy cream. Top it off with your favorite toppings, or add even more bacon and chives.

Our potato leek soup with bacon and chives is a very easy soup to make, and it is one that your whole family is sure to love! We like to leave ours a bit rustic (a few chunky pieces) versus blending it until completely smooth. Enjoy!
