How to Make Lazy Potato Soup


  1. Saute vegetables in butter until soft. Add dry potatoes, sauce mix packet, broth, and 2 1/2 cups of water. Mix well. Sauce mix will be lumpy but it always cooks out.

  3. Add diced sausage, ham, or browned hamburger. Heat thouroughly. Stir in milk and cheese. Do not boil. Stir until cheese is melted.
  4. Add extra water if soup seems too thick. Adjust seasoning to taste. Enjoy!
