Potato Leek Soup

A creamy, rich, comforting soup from the magical Be Our Guest restaurant in Disney World. It's a perfect, easy weeknight meal paired with a salad and fresh bread. And, you can dress it up with some crispy bacon or cheesy croutons for something even more special.

Recipe Notes

I like to give it a little whir with the immersion blender, just to make it super creamy, but it's up to you.
