Leftovers - Easy Potato Soup
Craving Potato Soup? Start with leftover or store-bought mashed potatoes. Whisk potatoes into warm chicken broth until thickened and smotth. Stir in chopped green onions and top with diced red peppers or bacon. Yum!
I also like to keep leftover hearty bread slices in the freezer (Italian or artisan breads that only last a day or so). Simply throw a piece in the toaster and it makes a terrific dipping side to soups like this. You could also place a few slices on a baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil - bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes and you've got a nice base for cheese, fruit, herbs, or preserves.
