I first made these scrumptious potatoes as a surprise for my daughter during her freshman year of college. Canned pumpkin and a medley of root vegetables take ordinary mashed potatoes to extraordinary. —Susan Sutphin, Sevierville, Tennessee
I love to entertain, and this recipe is one of my favorites to fix for guests. Onion, celery and bacon season the thin but creamy broth in this chunky potato soup, which always wins raves when I serve it.
