Easy Baked Potato Soup
Potato soup is one of my favorite things to cook, eat and enjoy. I have made it several different ways for my family. I recently made baked potato soup, with leftover baked potatoes. This soup is now my favorite way to make it. When baking potatoes, we bake a few extra, so we can make soup or have American fries.
Taking leftover potatoes and turning them into a delicious soup is so simple. How do you like your potato soup? Do you like it with cracker, cheese or bread?
