Easy Potato Soup Recipe

2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup shredded carrots
2 to 4 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup milk, or more if needed
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or 2 to 3 slices American cheese
Salt and pepper

In saucepan, sauté butter, onion and carrots for several minutes. Stir in mashed potatoes.



Stir in milk. If soup is too thick, add a little more milk. (Add small amounts of milk at a time so the mixture doesn’t become so thin you could drink it.)

Stir in cheese, and season with salt and pepper. (After adding the cheese, if you think the mixture is too thin, add a few instant potato flakes; not many as it will thicken fast.)
