Creamy Hash Brown Potato Soup

A friend brought me this soup when I was sick. It tastes like it simmered for hours, but basic ingredients make it a snap to prepare. —Pat Maruca, Philippi, West Virginia

    Very quick and tasty! The only changes I made were I used milk for 1/2 of the water and I substituted a can of cream of chicken soup for one of the cans of soup. I will definitely make this again!

    This is one of my go to soups when I am in a hurry. I dress it up by cooking the onions before adding the potatoes & water. I also like to add a cap-full of liquid smoke to give it a little more depth. When serving I sprinkle some shredded cheese and bacon bits and serve with bread - the whole family loves this one.

    This soup was fast and easy. I made it and the family thought ot was bought from a local popular steakhouse that os known for it's soup. The only deviation I made was I added some diced smoked ham. I am going to make this for my next potluck they will think I have worked all day on it. Thanks.

    This soup was extremely quick and easy to make. It was a bit bland though, so we all added some "pizza spice" to our bowls and it was yummy!
