Loaded Mashed Potato Soup I Mommy Hates Cooking

Are you all still full from yesterday?  Or maybe you are gearing up for round 2?  This year, we only had 1 Thanksgiving Dinner, there have been some years where it seems like we have one after another.  It was sort of nice only having one.

Loaded Mashed Potato Soup

I thought today I would share this Loaded Mashed Potato Soup because it’s a great way to use up leftover mashed potatoes and it’s SO good!  I made this during the day and had already had a few bowls of it by dinner time.  It was perfect for a cold day and even better when it can be made with leftovers.

I also love that this recipe includes dill which is one of my favorite ingredients.  I’m bound to love anything that involves dill!

    I made this a few nights ago and it was/is wonderful. I would have never thought to use leftover mashed potatoes. I had some leftover cheesy scalloped potatoes and added some of those in also. I smooshed them up a bit to overall consistency was smooth. Good recipe. I enjoy your site.

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it! I had the same thought when I first made it too, that I never thought to use mashed potatoes! Those scalloped potatoes sound great in it!
