Something New: Easy Potato Soup

After a food event at the office, I had to get the recipe from a coworker of her delicious potato  soup. She quickly shared the recipe and confessed that it was "easy", so I had to give it a whirl.

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.

I love Potato soup, so will make sure Terri sees the recipe. Currently she makes it using aLisa's killer recipe that is fairly complex.

That is really interesting--especially the gravy mix part!
