What You Need

slices  OSCAR MAYER Selects Smoked Uncured Bacon, chopped
3

1
lb.  baking potatoes (about 3), peeled, chopped
Dash  white pepper
1/2

Make It

COOK bacon in medium skillet on medium-high heat 5 min. or until bacon is lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

MEANWHILE, bring broth to boil in medium saucepan. Add leeks, potatoes and pepper; simmer 10 min. or until potatoes are tender. Remove from heat.

RESERVE 1/4 cup bacon. Add remaining bacon and milk to soup; blend, in small batches, in blender until smooth; pour into bowl. Top with reserved bacon.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Garnish with filled soup bowl with a small dollop of BREAKSTONE'S or KNUDSEN Sour Cream and additional leeks.
Keeping it Safe
When pureeing the soup, be sure to add no more than 2 cups soup to the blender at a time. This will prevent the soup from overflowing over the top of the blender as it is blended.
How to Clean the Leeks
Remove the darkest green leaves from the tops of the leeks and any root strings from the bases of the leeks. Cut the leeks lengthwise in half, then hold them under cold running water to remove any dirt, occasionally pulling leaves apart to remove dirt between the leaves. Use only the white and light green leaves for cooking.
