Leftover Makeover – Creamy Potatoes Soup Recipe

Do you see leftover as headache or quick fix to the next yummy meal? If reheating them without a makeover, I bet most people won’t enjoy it. However, if you add a few new ingredients and make it into something new, it will save you time, money and make room for your refrigerator. Today, I transformed the leftover mashed potatoes (you can use baked potatoes too) into creamy potatoes soup.

Tips:

1. Baked potatoes can easily turn into this soup, just scoop the fresh out and add a touch more milk than the recipe above, reuse all the toppings as garnish, done.

2. If super smooth consistence is desired, put the soup in a blender for a few minutes.
