Easy baked potato soup

1 ½ c c Country Style peppered gravy mix (Morrison’s)

7 c water

1 lb frozen hash browns

4-8 slices bacon, fried & crumbled*

½ c green onions, sautéed*

1 ½ c cheddar cheese

1. Combine gravy mix with 1 c slightly warm water, mix with a whisk until thoroughly blended

2. In a large pan, combine 6 c water with hash browns, bring to full boil for 5 minutes before adding gravy.

3. Add gravy, stirring vigorously. Continue stirring until mixture thickens, approx. 1 minute.

4. Reduce heat and stir in sautéed onions, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese.

My 14 month old daughter loves this. Odysseus, who had never before liked potato soup, likes this. It takes about fifteen minutes to make, so I love this.

*You can substitute a half a bag to a full bag of real bacon bacon bits for the fresh stuff--5-10 Tbsp.  And if you don't have green onions on hand, you can substitute dried minced or chopped onions.  Just put them in the water with the hash browns.
