Last week I made some Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup. This week I had another crazy day (Hmmm, seams to be a pattern... Oh yea, I'm a mom!) so I made another one of my fall backs: Simple potato soup. When ever I make mashed potatos for dinner I make about 16 helpings. My family only eats about 6-10 servings leaving me at least 6 servings. From this I make soup. What's my secret here?
So here it is:
6-10 servings of mashed potatoes (Homemade or instant)
2 cans evaporated milk
1/8 cup Seasoned salt
Mix all ingredients in a pot on med heat.
Even easier than my veggie soup. The fun part is the garnishes:
- Ritz Crackers: I know, I know more carbs, but hey, this is comfort food that's all!
- Loaded potato soup: Add bacon bits, shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
- Hot potato: just a few dashes of Tabasco.
- Popcorn seasoning: Ranch and White Cheddar are our favorites, but it also comes in nacho, butter, and other fun flavors.
