    Default la Madeleine's Country Potato Soup

    This recipe is from Executive Chef Remy Schaal of la Madeleine French Bakery & Cafe. Founded in Dallas in 1983, la Madeleine has many neighborhood cafes and bakeries in five states and Washington, D.C.

    1/8 cup unsalted butter
    2 leeks, thinly sliced
    1 large yellow onion, sliced
    1 1/2 qt. chicken stock
    4 large peeled potatoes, sliced evenly in 1/4 inch slides
    2 sprigs fresh thyme
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    1 cup cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup bacon cooked and diced
    salt to taste

    In a large saucepan, add butter, leeks and onions, and cook.
    (Do not brown vegetables.) Add chicken stock, potatoes, salt and fresh thyme.
    Cook for 40 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently to avoid scorching.
    Add cream, bring to a boil and serve hot.
    Garnish with Cheddar cheese and diced bacon.
