Makeover Hash Brown Soup

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Cook: 6 hours


8 servings

"I like this soup so much, but imagine the calorie count is shocking, " writes Judith Webb from Blue Springs, Missouri. "Any ideas for lightening it up?" Our Test Kitchen showed her how to alter her recipe for a rich and creamy soup with all the bacony goodness of the original...but only a third of the calories and less than one-fourth the saturated fat!


  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 package (28 ounces) frozen O'Brien potatoes, thawed
  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 6 turkey bacon strips, diced and cooked
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  1. In a small skillet, saute onions in oil until tender. In a 5-qt. slow cooker, combine the potatoes, milk, soup and onions.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until heated through. Top each serving with 2 tablespoons bacon and 1 tablespoon cheese.
