  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 100 g lean rindless bacon

  • fresh shredded mint
  • 8 slices french bread

  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan and saute the onion, garlic and bacon for 3-4 minutes over a medium heat until softened.
  2. Add the diced potato and stock and simmer for 30-40 minutes, or until the potato is soft.
