Adventures of Eating with dReJ: healthy, cheap, delicious

Loaded Potato Soup

Very yummy for a cool Fall evening!

Here’s the link to the recipe: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=10000002012818&cookbook_id=5334599

What we changed:

Okay – so we kept the ingredients the same, but when we cooked this it turned out more like mashed potatoes than a soup. 😦 So RJ being the whiz he is decided to thin it out with  2% milk to make it a soup consistency.

dReJ tip: We made this meal in advance – so perhaps if you are eating it right away, you may not have this problem. Just keep an eye out for the consistency!

We also couldn’t resist buying a French baguette to go with this soup. It was a perfect dipping bread – we toasted it up and put a little low fat shredded cheese on it. Delicious!

Calorie Count: The recipe as is = 325. We added some 2% milk and some bread with low fat shredded cheese. So let’s add another 150 for the bread, 45 for the cheese & 70 for 1/2 cup 2% milk. So about 590 calories. Again – if you are trying to lose weight, just skip the bread on the side!
