Peel and chop the onion. Dice the bacon. Peel and dice the potatoes. Wash and slice the leeks.

Melt butter in a large saucepan, then fry the bacon and onion, stirring until they start to turn golden.

Tip in the pototoes, stir well, then cover and turn down the heat.

Cook gently for 5 minutes, shaking the pan every now and then to make sure that the mixture does not catch.

Leave to cool for a few minutes, then blend until smooth. Return to the pan, pour in cream and stir in well. Taste and season if necessary.
