Very easy and a great use for the bit of leftover mashed potatoes you may have. I loved how the potstoes and cheese thickened the soup just right. The recipe really rides on how good and well-seasoned your mashed potatoes are. I use garlic, butter, sour cream, s & p in mine. I wouldn't use instant mashed for this recipe. Thanx for a yummy soup!

I tried making this soup without a recipe, but using an instant cream of potato soup mix and the potatoes pieces were hard like rocks, ruined the soup, so I'm going to try this recipe, thank you!
