8 potatoes peeled and cubed
3 garlic cloves
4 cups chicken broth
1 cup half and half or light cream
1/2 lb bacon cut into 1" pieces
1 dash of nutmeg
3 leeks, sliced
1/2 tsp pepper
In a large saucepan, bring potatoes and chicken broth to a boil. Cook
potatoes until tender. Do Not drain.
Mash potatoes until smooth or leave chunky for a little texture.
Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high
heat until evenly brown. Remove bacon, reserving 3 tbsp grease.
Sautee the leeks and garlic in the frying pan with the reserved bacon
grease 8-10 mins.
Stir the fried leeks, cream and bacon into the potatoes. Stir to blend.
Season to taste.
