I am not a fan of leftovers. And leftover mashed potatoes??? Well....double yuck. But it always seems that when I whip up a pot of potatoes, I make too much. Which is why I was very excited when I stumbled across this recipe!
This soup is really yummy. I can imagine that this will REALLY hit the spot when the temps start dropping.
Drizzle of olive oil (optional)
6 slices bacon, chopped
4 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
4 tablespoons flour
1 quart chicken stock
2 cups leftover mashed potatoes
8 ounces shredded yellow cheddar cheese
Chopped chives, for garnish (I left this out because, well....I didn't have any!)
