I really love this recipe. I substituded 2 cups of chicken broth and added 2 small baked potatoes cubed and added turkey bacon bits. It was awesome and. I will make it again.

I just happened to have 1 1/2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes! Made it in a jiffy and It was delicious!!?? I did substitute organic chicken broth for the milk, as I am dairy intolerant and I used some just rendered bacon drippings instead of butter. I gobbled up two bowls in one sitting.Excellent remedy for a cold rainy night in Georgia. Will definitely be making this often.

This was my favorite recipe in a book I got back in junior high. I'd lost the book in a move years back and have been looking for it ever since. Thanks Taste of Home for reuniting us. ;)

I actually made this recipe with instant mashed potatoes and dried minced onion. I added a handful of mixed frozen veggies and some leftover bacon, crumbled. So easy ad a really yummy recipe.

Excellent use for leftover mashed potatoes! And, I always have all the other ingredients on hand. Don't let its looks fool you while it's cooking. It looked really thin, and I was afraid it was going to taste like warm milk, but it was delicious. I made it with leftover scallion mashed potatoes, put croutons on top, and served it with a salad. It was the perfect cool weather weekend lunch.

I actually skipped the butter and used instant minced onion. This soup was so easy and good. The pepper gave it a little bite.
