Leftover Mashed Potato Soup

Are you tired of eating Thanksgiving leftovers? Most of mine went into the freezer … which is great because I’ll be hungry for it all again in about … next year!  Seriously, I love having food in the freezer for weeknight dinners in a pinch.  I also love recreating leftovers because MPG and Noodle hate leftovers. 

Leftover mashed potatoes make perfect soup and most of the work is already done for you. 

I used a lot of bacon!

Then browned some onions in the bacon grease and made a rue by stirring flour into the onions.  A little chicken stock and white wine … then the leftover mashed potatoes and sour cream … and you get this wonderful concoction.

A little bit of Parmesan cheese (or any cheese, really) …
