About this recipe: This is how I use up leftover mash! Also can be made with fresh potatoes, and leeks instead of onions. Garnish with chives for a nice finishing touch.
This is a great base recipe. You can add double cream instead of milk for a more luxurious soup, grated Cheddar and bacon for a hearty soup, or chopped fresh herbs and grated Parmesan to really make something special out of mere leftovers. Use vegetable stock for a vegetarian version.
Used different ingredients. Yummy way to use up mash. I added soured cream, chives and cheddar cheese on top. Mmmm- comfort food. - 15 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts. Very easy and very tasty! Perfect comfort food. I added a bit more milk and let it simmer a while to really let the flavours blend. - 15 Sep 2008
Good basic soup recipe - I've made it a few times. 've added chorizo, bacon and veg to mine - sometimes I add a bit of cream too - lovely - 12 Mar 2011
