Beef Soup Spuds Recipe

Canned soup is the convenient base for this colorful tater topper. As the potatoes are baked in the microwave, the chunky soup—along with bright broccoli for color and flavor—is heated in a snap on the stovetop.—Joleen Jackson, Zumbrota, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
