Easy Meal Idea: Campbell’s Chunky Soup over Mashed Potatoes

As much as I would like to take credit for this idea, I have to be honest.  I saw it on a commercial for Campbell’s Chunky Soup.  You know…the type of commercial where the whole family sits down to dinner and everyone is all smiles and loves whatever the mom puts in front of them.  Usually, I don’t pay any attention to commercials, but this one came with an incredible idea!!

It is Campbell’s Chunky Soup poured over Mashed Potatoes!  I used the Sirloin Burger with Country Vegetables kind of Chunky Soup.  The broth from the soup becomes like a gravy, and you have a full meal of meat, vegetables, and a starch!
I recommend using three potatoes for each one can of soup for this great dinner recipe!
  • Peel three potatoes and cut into cubes.
  • Place potatoes in boiling water until thoroughly cooked (insert a fork – if it comes out easily, they are done).
  • Put your potatoes in a mixer, add a little butter and milk to achieve desired creaminess.  Add in some salt here if you would like.
  • Heat your soup over the stove or in the microwave.
  • Scoop a large heap of mashed potatoes onto your plate and then top with the soup.
It’s an easy meal that is fast, delicious, and wholesome!

    As a vegetarian I must say, soup over mashed potato is a favorite easy dinner for me. A good staple for those days your sick and are too ill to make anything that takes a long time


  1. […] Chunky Soup Over Potatoes – I admit, this seems kind of weird to me.  But it also seems pretty creative.  Campbell’s Chunky Soup is on sale, so why not serve it over potatoes (or rice would be good too!). […]
