Great way to use leftover potatoes. So easy to make for a quick lunch on a cold day. Thanks for sharing Jen. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.

This is such a nice way to use up your leftover potatoes, I used smoked lardons and cooked them in the pan before I added the onion, as for the rest I followed the recipe. My DH just loved this actually he ate the most of it himself, and I have now been told to make more mash than I need to, so I can make the soup again. I served it with some chives cut on top and your porter house rolls and both were yummy. Made for PAC Spring 2011.
