  • 2

    cups mashed potatoes, leftover

  • 1/4-1/2

    cup corn, leftover

  • 1/4-1/2

    cup cauliflower (in cheese sauce also works great) or 1/4-1/2 cup broccoli, leftover (in cheese sauce also works great)

  • 1/2

    teaspoon sea salt (or Kosher Salt)

  • 1/4

    teaspoon white pepper

  • 1/2

  • 2

Directions

dd oil to a large & deep (2-3 inches deep) saucepan or soup pot, set over medium-high heat. Add onion & celery, saute for 3-5 minutes or until softened. Add stock & simmer approximately 6 minutes, then add the left over mashed potatoes and bring to a simmer. 2 Using a hand blender or regular blender, puree soup until smooth (when using a regular blender, work in batches to prevent messy cleanups!). Add leftover corn, cauliflower or broccoli, Cheddar Cheese, salt, white pepper, & paprika (crumbled bacon pieces – if you have them). Stir to combine all well and allow the cheese to melt.
