Leftover Mashed Potato Soup

I was craving soup tonight after a wet and chilly day in North Texas. Wanting something simple yet hearty, creamy potato soup is always a favorite in my home.

However, I was not in the mood to peel and boil potatoes. With a fridge still full of leftovers, I decided to do the lazy frugal thing and utilize my Thanksgiving mashed potatoes! Reducing waste is a key factor in a frugal lifestyle. So why not repurpose those leftovers?

I decided to do a variation on two recipes for potato soup from two of my favorite bloggers. Lynn’s Panera Creamy Potato Soup [2] and Toni’s Healthy Cream of Potato Soup [3].

My version is not quite as healthy as Toni’s, but at least I managed to sneak some veggies in with all that cheese. ;) By the way, those mashed potatoes were made with straight up half-and-half and butter, just the way I like ‘em, y’all!

My children and hubby thoroughly enjoyed this hearty soup! Next time you have some leftover mashed potatoes, consider freezing them for soup later. You’ll be wasting less, and serving a wholesome and inexpensive meal to boot.

That works for me [5]!
