Potatoes and gravy mix make a quick, thick soup.

Top Review by momEgodess

I loved this soup. I didn't have any bacon so I used lowfat smoked sausage and added to the soup the last five minutes of cooking. I also added half of an onion to the boiling potatoes and about 2 t of garlic pepper, but would saute onions in some of the butter first next time. I also used the water that the potatoes cooked in, I think it would have been too thick for me if I hadn't done this. Loved the taste, and so simple to make.
