Irish Potato Soup
This soup is from MyRecipes, It was noted that this recipe is from McGuires Irish Pub, Pensacola, FL.,
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 medium onion - finely chopped
3 leeks- sliced
3 large baking potatoes- peeled and cut into 1/4 inch chunks
3 ( 14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth( used 5 1/4 cups homemade broth)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Toppings- cheese, bacon, chopped fresh chives
In a large saucepan melt butter.
Add onion ( I used the food processor to chop it) and leeks to the saucepan.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add in the potatoes to the onion/leek mixture and cook an additional 15 minutes.
Stir in the broth and the salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes.
Use a blender or hand held Immersion Blender and mix until smooth. Garnish with any topping you enjoy.
Irish Soda Bread would be great with this soup!
