Preparation

In saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towel to drain and let cool; crumble. Drain off all but 1 tbsp (15 mL) fat from pan.

In same pan, cook leeks, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 8 minutes.

Add potatoes and wine; cook, stirring, until no liquid remains. Add broth and 2 cups (500 mL) water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until potatoes are softened, 20 minutes. Let cool slightly.

In blender in batches, purée until smooth. (Make-ahead: Let cool. Refrigerate soup and bacon in separate airtight containers for up to 2 days.)

To serve, reheat soup in saucepan over medium heat. Divide among twenty-four 2 oz (50 mL) heatproof glasses or cups. Garnish with bacon.
