  • 4 medium slice (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 1 each Leek
  • 1 tsp Garlic
  • 1 tsp, crumbled Bay Leaf
  • 1/4 tsp, leaves Thyme (Dried)
  • 2 cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 tsp Sage (Ground)
  • 1 cup Cooked Cauliflower
  • 2 cup, cooked, diced Chicken Breast
  • 4 cup Chicken Broth, Bouillon or Consomme
  • 1/8 tsp Nutmeg (Ground)


  1. Slice bacon crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick strips. Place in a stockpot, and cook over medium heat until crisp, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels to drain; set aside.  Retain the fat from the bacon.
  2. Dice the leeks and add them to the stockpot; cook until wilted, about 5 minutes. Stir in minced garlic. Add chicken broth, bay leaf and thyme; bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Pour in heavy cream, and increase heat slightly. Add sage sprig, and simmer for 5 to 10 minutes (the longer it simmers, the stronger the sage flavor will be). Discard sage sprig and bay leaf. Stir in cauliflower, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and cook for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly.
  4. Using a blender or food processor, coarsely purée the soup (leaving some texture) in batches. Return to medium heat.
  5. Add chicken, pepper and nutmeg. Heat until chicken is warm, about 5 minutes. Divide bacon among serving bowls, and ladle bisque over top.
