It isn’t often that I have leftover mashed potatoes from Thanksgiving but for some reason I did this year. I had enough mashed potatoes to make a good potato soup.
I added some milk and water to the mashed potatoes. I didn’t have to add much seasoning to the soup because the mashed potatoes already had lots of seasoning in them including cream cheese, sour cream, and butter. I did add more salt and pepper. I also added a few dashes of garlic powder. I also added about 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese to the soup. Cook this until the cheese melts.
The soup can be topped with chopped cooked bacon, more cheese and chopped parsley.
This turned out so good and it used up the rest of the mashed potatoes. Even better yet was, it made one meal.
