How to Make Potato Leek Soup?

To make Potato Leek and Bacon Soup, first we need to prep all of the ingredients.

Lets start by cutting leeks in half and chopping them.

After you chop leeks place them in a big bowl and wash them with cold water until nice and clean.

Next, prepare the rest of the ingredients: 5 cups of Homemade Chicken Broth, 5 slices of bacon, salt, pepper & 1/2 teaspoon thyme.

Peel and dice about 5 potatoes and chop fresh parsley for garnish.

Cook bacon until crispy texture.

Next, slice 5 slices of bacon into tiny pieces. Place bacon into the Instant Pot and turn it on saute mode.

Cook bacon for 10 minutes or until crispy color, stirring few times.

Saute chopped leeks for 5 minutes inside Instant Pot.

Transfer bacon to a plate lined with paper towel, leave 2 tablespoons of bacon grease inside the Instant Pot.

Now, add chopped leeks, cook for 5 minutes, stirring few times.

Cover the lid and cook 10 minutes on a Soup/Broth mode. Make sure the steam release handle is in the ‘Sealing’ position.

Carefully, quick release the pressure by turning the steam release handle into venting position.

I like to use a clean spoon or a towel for turning the steam handle, so I don’t burn my fingers by HOT steam.

Open the lid and serve Potato Leek Soup with bacon and fresh parsley. Enjoy!

Quote of the Day

You are somebody's reason to smile.

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Very good recipe. I used homemade turkey broth rather than chicken. When I reheated it for supper on the second night, I garnished the soup with bacon, parsley and grated very old white English cheddar cheese. It was good the first night but the cheese really made this “pop”.

    • Hi Amy, I would saute leeks for 10 minutes, then add everything to the pot, bring it to a boil and simmer for 25-30 minutes. After garnish with bacon and greens. I hope this helps!

  2. 5 stars
    I love how easy this recipe is – and especially love using bacon to flavor it up – yum!! It’s getting chilly out so soups will soon be on our menu a lot these days.
