Jamallah Bergman


A awesome cheese and bacon....I mean come on what could be wrong with this soup!

pinch tips: How to Melt and Soften Butter




4 to 6


6 Tbsp
unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
2 c
chopped yellow onions
leek, white park only, well rinsed and finely sliced
celery ribs
carrots, chopped and peeled
1 medium
potato, peeled and diced
1 c
dry white wine or dry vermouth
3 c
chicken stock
1/2 to 3/4 lb
imported roquefort or other blue cheese
salt and pepper,to taste
6 to 8
bacon strips, sauteed crisp and crumbled, for garnish

Directions Step-By-Step

Melt the butter in a large heavy pot over low heat. Add the onion,leek,celery and carrots and cook,covered until the vegetables are tender and lightly colored, about 25 minutes,stirring occasionally.
Add the potato,white wine, and stock, bring to a boil,reduce the heat and simmer partially covered until very tender about 20 minutes.
Remove the soup from the heat and crumble in 1/2 pound of the cheese. Stir until the cheese has melted into the soup, then pour the soup through a strainer, reserving the liquid. Transfer the solid to a food processor or use a food mill fitted with a medium disc. Add 1 cup of the cooking stock and process until smooth.
Return the soup to the pot, pour in the rest of the liquid and simmer over medium heat. Taste and correct the seasoning; you may want to add a little more cheese, and the soup may need salt and pepper.
Ladle into bowls, garnish with the bacon crumbles and serve immediately.
