Cream of Potato Bacon Soup

I love this soup. It actually turned out wonderful. I am sorry I do not have a picture of this for you all to see but I will make it again soon.

Cream of Potato Bacon Soup
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp Olive Oil
1/2 onion chopped
1 pkg bacon chopped *can use the precooked packaged chopped bacon*
1 leek chopped
1 cup shreeded carrots * I bought a bag that was preshreeded*
2 tbsps flour
4-6 large yukon gold potatoes cubed skin on
6 cups of chicken stock
2 cups of half and half cream
2 fresh basil leaves
Salt and pepper to taste.

Put butter and oil into a soup pot add chopped onion and leek reducing it down. Add bacon until tender add flour and carrots. Pour in chicken stock, cream and basil. Bring to a boiling point. Take emersion blender (if you do not have an emersion blender you can use a blender just put a little bit in at a time as it is hot) and blend till little chunks. Add potatoes cook till tender and serve. Makes 4-8 servings of soup.
