Welsh Cawn Cennin

This traditional Welsh leek broth hearkens back to King Cadwallader's defeat of the Saxons in the 5th century; served to 4 as a first course, it will strengthen the heart cords of anyone with Welsh blood.

Saute the bacon until crisp--remove it and reserve. Add the leeks to the bacon grease and stir to coat for about 2 minutes, until they takes on a little golden color. Pour in the stock, bring to a boil, and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Puree, bring to a boil, season to taste, then ladle into bowls and top with crumbled bacon and fresh circles of leek.
