    Lorraine's Note:

    The idea for the recipe came from a soup I had at Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. It is easy to prepare, but tastes gourmet!

      This ranks among my very favourite soups!! I made a bunch of it and froze it in 1- and 2-serving portions. To cut down on the sodium content, I used salt substitute instead of salt, and I used homemade chicken stock (almost sodium-free) instead of store-bought cans.

      I made it with 3/4 cup 2% evaporated milk (instead of cream), didn't add the extra salt, and it turned out great.

      One of the best potato leek soups I have ever tasted. Easy to make,and it truly does taste gourmet. Served with a good cornbread, it's even better!
