Quick and Easy Potato Soup

Potato soup is always comforting, loved by both children and adults. This is a quick and easy version using leftover mashed potatoes. You can improvise potato soup with just about any kind of leftover potatoes--if there's been some salty sausage or ham cooked, add that, too!

Recipe from More-with-Less (called "Golden Potato Soup")

  • 1/3 c. finely chopped onion
  • 2 T. butter or oil
  • 1 T. flour
  • 1 t. salt
  • dash pepper
  • 1 c. water
  • 1 c. leftover mashed potatoes (or more)
  • 2 1/2 c. milk
  • 1/2 c. grated cheese

  1. Saute onions slowly in butter until yellow and softened.
  2. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Add water and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and heat slowly until cheese melts. Do not boil.
  4. Garnish with bacon bits, parsley, croutons, leftover chopped cooked broccoli, or whatever!
Serves 4
