Leftovers to Good Use

Are you sick of turkey yet? We had enough to last 5 extra meals. We made Shepherd's Pie, sandwiches and soups. With the last of the mashed potatoes I made....

Potato Cheese Soup
1 can. chicken stock
2 Tbsp. butter
1/4 c. flour
2 c. mashed potatoes
2 c. milk
3 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
2 tsp. onion flake
1 c. chunked or shredded cheddar cheese.

Make a roux using butter and flour until the butter absorbs all the flour and it looks like crumbly butter. Add chicken stock, milk, spices and bring to boil. Add mashed potatoes. Boil until the mashed potatoes are warmed through and the soup has a smooth texture.Add cheese and serve.

This was an easy way to use up leftovers. You could also use this as a base and add veggies, bacon or ham or other toppings to round it out.

We served this with grilled cheese sandwiches and it was an easy lunch!

Happy Leftovers! Bring on the Christmas baking and present making!
