Creamy Potato & Burnt Leek Soup With Cheesy Bacon Buns

I used to think that potato leek soup was a difficult dish to make, oh how wrong I was. This is one of the best dishes to serve as a starter or even a main if it is a cold day. All you have to do is boil some potatoes, fry leeks and garlic add the rest of the ingredients and cook for a few minutes until the ingredients get to know each other. If you want to add a bit more ‘pizazz’, follow this recipe:

Chefs Tips
Since the soup won’t take much of your attention, redirect your creativity toward the main reason we all love soup — BREAD! You can simply buy premade sourdough from your local grocery store if you are not in the mood for kneading dough. These cheesy bacon buns are incredibly easy and ridiculously delicious.
