Quick Potato Soup

Here's a quick 'n' easy soup recipe that tends to be comfort food, especially this time of the year.  I hope this will be enjoyed by all in your kitchen. Add a salad or sandwich to a warm comforting bowl of soup, and you'll have some happy tummies in your home.

We'll start with this one that uses leftover mashed potatoes...soooo easy!


8 strips bacon, diced

1 small onion, chopped

1-1/2 - 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 soup canful of milk (or more)

1/2 tsp. salt, optional

1/4 tsp. pepper

parsley for garnish if desired

In a small frying pan, brown bacon until crisp.  Place on paper towel to drain. Add onion to drippings and saute 2 - 3 minutes; drain off the fat.  Mix the potatoes with the soup until blended; stir in milk until desired consistency.  Add bacon and onions - season with spices and serve warm.  MMM!
