WFMW Three Ingredient Extravaganza

Today’s edition of WFMW calls for a quick meal when you only have three ingredients. Here is a favorite standby of mine that always comes in handy when the cupboards are bare:

The BEST Potato Soup

*3-4 peeled and chopped potatoes

(I personally like to use red potatoes and leave the skin on)

*Instant Potato Flakes



*Salt & Pepper

(Okay, so technically this is 5 ingredients, but I’m counting on you having butter and salt. Totally a combination that makes the world go round for me. )

Chop potatoes and place in boiling water – enough to cover about 2-3 inches.

Boil potatoes until fork tender.

Add potato flakes until you absorb the water and have a runny mashed potato consistency.

Add milk until the soup is the thickness you like. I prefer my soup a little on the runnier side. If you like it thicker, use more flakes and less milk.

Butter and salt the heck out of it.

Did I mention I love butter and salt?

AND, if you have a few more things in your cabinet, here’s how to kick it up a notch and turn it into :

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Grated Cheese
Bacon Bits
Sour Cream
Red Onion
