it’s FALL here in the Northeast.. which of course you already know that I LOVE !!!!!
this here, my friends is the easiest soup that you will ever make. And it rivals Panera’s. I promise.
I pinky promise 🙂
Crock pot Potato Soup
1~ a bag of frozen hash browns ( $2)
2~ a package of Mccormick country gravy mix ( near the spices) ( $1.50)
3~ a box o stock ( $2) ( for vegetarian, use veg stock)
4~ shredded cheddar ( $2) ( optional)
place all ingredients except cheese in a crock pot on low for 6 hours… stir in cheese during last 1/2 hour
OR place all ingredients except cheese in a stock pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are soft.. stir in cheese at the end until melted.
you can keep it as is.. and have it chunky ( yum) or you can use an immersion blender and blend until smooth..
you could get all crazy and add broccoli.. or bacon… or asparagus…. use your imagination! get down with your bad self!
For those of you who are campers ( you know who you are 😉 ) this is a perfect dinner to whip up at the campground !
and the grand total..
$4.50 for the whole pot without cheese ( cheaper than a bowl of soup at Panera)
or $ 6.50 with the cheese ( go for the cheese 😉 it makes me happy 🙂 🙂 🙂
and remember.. there is still time to register to win a pair of Mom’s hand knit SOCKS
