I'm a busy wife and mother with not a lot of time to spend in the kitchen. This time-saving soup recipe relies on frozen potatoes and canned soup. —Stacy Barron, Bentonville, Arkansas


  • 1 package (24 ounces) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • Cooked crumbled bacon


  1. In a large saucepan, cook and stir the potatoes and onion in butter over medium-low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in the milk, soup, cheese and garlic salt. Cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Garnish with bacon.

    This is a very quick easy soup to make and it is delicious. I didn't have the shredded hash browns so I used the cube ones. You could also add ham to this to make it a heartier meal.I will be making this often!
