- 1 box chicken broth
- 1 pkg. country gravy mix
- 1 tsp minced garlic or garlic powder
- 32 oz. package frozen hash browns (cubed or shredded, your choice)
- 1 medium onion, minced
- Salt and pepper to taste
Add the above ingredients in order, whisking gravy mix into broth until smooth before adding the rest. Cook on low all day or on high for 3-4 hours. Then stir in:
- 2-3 cups shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterrey Jack, Velveeta, or combination)
- More salt and pepper and/or other seasonings if needed
Serve when fully melted and heated. Top with crumbled bacon and more shredded cheese and sour cream if desired.
Note: the first 6 ingredients can be left on their own to make the famous Weight Watchers potato soup; 1 cup = 1 point (as long as the chicken broth is fat-free).
