directions

  • Melt the butter over medium high heat in a dutch oven. Fry the bacon until crispy. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towel and set aside.
  • To the bacon drippings add the yellow, red, and white onions, shallots, thyme, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Saute, stirring often, until the onions begin to caramelize (at least 15 minutes).
  • Add the leeks and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle on the flour, and stir gently until all the flour is incorporated. Continue cooking, stirring often, until the flour has begun to cook (at least 5 minutes).
  • Add the Chicken stock and taste to adjust seasonings. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits off the bottom. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer, partly covered, for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the bay leaf and use a submersible blender to puree the soup. Add the cream, taste to adjust seasonings, and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  • Ladle into individual bowls, sprinkled with some of the reserved bacon.
