Merry Christmas dear friends!
We are in Missouri spending time with our family. A little sleet, a little rain, but thankfully not much else. So on this chilly, rather blustery Christmas Eve my Mom fixed a wonderful simplified version of potato soup called Bacon, Cheese and Potato Chowder. So good with some crusty french bread. She's always coming up with delicious new soup recipes for us. And it's easy, too!
Bacon, Cheese and Potato Chowder
3 cups milk
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) condensed Cream of Potato Soup
2 cups frozen Southern-Style Hash Browns
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 slices bacon, cooked crisply, crumbled
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Mix milk and soup in a large saucepan. Stir in hash browns. Bring to a boil on high heat, stirring occasionally; simmer on medium-low heat 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Serve topped with cheese, bacon and green onions.
This can easily be doubled or tripled to feed a crowd, as we had to do for our crew. So quick and easy we even made it to candle light service on time! (I was thinking it would be a quick and easy dinner for the day after Christmas, after a long day of hitting the sales!)
It's time for Mrs. Claus to fill some stockings. Yes, even adult children love their stocking stuffers!
Hugs and good wishes!
