Loaded Mashed Potato Soup With Betty Crocker

When it comes to making dinner, I like to keep things fairly simple in my kitchen. That means coming up with delicious meals that don't require a culinary degree or an extensive ingredient list. I will on occasion make special meals now that require extra fixings, but for the most part, simplicity is key to my everyday cooking.

A few days ago, I received a box of Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes. I’ve never tried them before, but I knew I wanted to switch things up a bit, and not make it the traditional way. So I came up with my Loaded Mashed Potato Soup! Nothing beats the winter chill quite like a steaming bowl of soup. It’s simple, easy, and is the perfect side for those days when all you want to make is a yummy sandwich.


To make the soup, I started by making the loaded mashed potatoes as directed on the box. I added a little extra milk because I wanted it creamier. I set it aside, then sautéed half an onion in butter until tender. I added the mashed potatoes, chicken stock, salt, pepper, and a handful of frozen vegetables. I heat it thoroughly, and topped it off with shredded cheese. You can also add crumbled bacon ( although the loaded mash comes with bacon bits already in it.)


1/2 chopped onion
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups chicken stock
1 Betty Crocker Loaded Mashed Potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup of frozen vegetables
1 pinch of shredded cheese for garnish
Few slices of cooked bacon crumbled (optional)
