Yes, even with all that cheese and bacon, this is still a healthy recipe!Ingredients:
10 creamer potatoes
1 bundle of leeks
6 cups broth
2 1/2 cups skim milk
turkey bacon, cooked and chopped
low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
1. Chop potatoes and leeks and place in slow cooker on low. Add broth and cook for 6 hours.
2. Strain out the broth. Set aside one cup for use, and feel free to do what you want with the leftovers. You can freeze it or toss it.
3. Place the potatoes back into the crock pot. Add the broth and the milk and mash the potatoes until it's a soft, chunky "soup." It will resemble the texture and color of applesauce.
4. Top with cheese, bacon and chives to serve.
