OK, so I guess I've lurked long enough. Today I'm having MammawVi's Potato Soup, a la Kara...
This is leftover from last night, but here is the basic recipe:
1pkg frozen Hash Browns (I use Ore Ida... some people call these southern style or home style... they are not shoestring but more like chopped potatoes)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 sm box (about 30 oz) of chicken broth
1 pt sour cream
seasonings (see below)
reserve sour cream. put all other ingredients in crock pot and cook on low, stirring occasionally for 6-8 hrs (we tried 5hrs once and the taters were still a little crunchy but more than 8 and you've basically got a puree). add sour cream, cook 20 min. serve with shredded cheese, bacon bits, chives or anything else you like on potatoes.
seasonings (this is the a la Kara part)
I'm not big on measurements... so these should be to taste for your family...
1 small onion finely chopped (I add about 2 Tbsp of minced onion flakes instead because I am super lazy)
2 big dashes (heh) of minced garlic flakes
2-3 tsp of black pepper
3 tsp of salt (I use kosher salt... I'm not just lazy... I'm weird too)
some recipes call for cream cheese instead of sour cream... then sour cream on top... I think this would be good, but then you have to work to blend in the cream cheese at the end... so I skip that.
Hope you enjoy, I know I am!
