Creamy, Easy No-Peeling Potato Soup

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by Debbie R.

I don't think it can get much easier. This one got a double thumbs up from DH. It's important to use frozen mashed potatoes and not dried, instant mashed potatoes. This was published in The Columbus Dispatch.

I used Simply Potatoes brand mashed potatoes with sour cream and chives. I also used 2% milk. I wanted to bacon this but I didn't have any on hand. I added a head of broccoli flowerets that I steamed first and used approx 1.5 or 2 cups of cheese. It was very good and well recived by the whole family. Next time I'll add the bacon and scallion but tonight I was just using up stuff that needed using ;-)
