This recipe came about when I was in the last restaurant I worked at.
The delivery truck mistakingly sent us a case of hash browns, that we don't serve. I also had some pkgs. of instant mashed potatoes that a previous cook used instead of real ones. I don't do that for a meal. Then I had some mushrooms that needed to be used & we had left over baked potatoes to use. So, this is what I came up with. Every loved it.

I made this for a catering last night & the people putting on the event came back & told me everyone was raving over the potatoes.

4Now, add the milk a little at a time, mixing well after each addition. Make sure this mixture is thick because the soup & cheese when warm will thin it. You can always add more milk later if too thick.
**Same amount of regular milk may be used.
