Mediocre Potato Soup

Mediocre Potato Soup

We had mashed potatoes last night but I was craving soup today.  I took about a cup or so of leftover mashed potatoes, dumped in some chicken broth and some milk, simmered it, and bam-o, potato soup.

If you like actual recipes, here is the one that inspired me:

Leftover Mashed Potato Soup


  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 4 Tbsp flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
  • 2 cups shredded cheese


Fry onion in butter til tender
Add flour and stir into butter onion mixture
Add broth and bring to a boil until it starts to thicken
Mix in mashed potatoes and cheese and heat until cheese is melted.
Garnish with chives, bacon and shredded cheese if desired
