To celebrate my father in law's birthday yesterday (Happy Birthday, Larry!) , we invited family and a friend or two over for dinner and birthday cake. I made an attempt at the "Easy Potato Soup" and folks came back for seconds, so I think I did alright. I doubled the recipe to feed 6 adults and 1 kid, I had PLENTY of leftovers, so I probably should have gone with just one recipe, not the double.
Time to share the recipe. Easy Potato Soup:
1 bag of hash brown potatoes (I think they are called country style)
1 can of chicken broth
2 pkts of country gravy mix (I used one regular and one pepper flavor)
1 block of Velveeta cheese – cut in chunks
Cover the potatoes with water and boil til soft
Pour out about the equivalent of 1 can of water and add the can of chicken broth
Bring back to a boil and then empty the pkts of gravy mix one at a time and stir with wire whisk til dissolved
Turn down heat a bit and add velveeta
Season to taste
Put some yummy bacon bits on top and serve. Enjoy.
