Potato Chowder

Your regularly scheduled pumpkin programming is being interrupted by Mr. Potato Head, who feels that another food needed a little attention for at least one post! Tonight he presents a Potato Chowder Recipe!

This recipe is from Kraft and is very versatile. The chowder is very smooth and creamy...perfect comfort food for a Fall night. Instead of using hash browns, I used diced potatoes. I added corn and omitted the bacon and onions. This recipe can be made lighter by using low fat or fat free cheese.

Potato Chowder
3 cups fat-free milk
1 can (10-3/4 oz.) condensed cream of potato soup
2 cups frozen Southern-style hash browns
1 cup KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 slices OSCAR MAYER Bacon, crisply cooked, drained and crumbled
2 green onions, thinly sliced

MIX milk and soup in large saucepan. Stir in hash browns. Bring to boil on high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 10 min., stirring frequently.
SERVE topped with cheese, bacon and onions.

Can you ask Mr. Potato Head how he'd taste with pumpkin? I'm envisioning pumpkin mashed potatoes to take the place of sweet potatoes at the Thanksgiving table... But you've probably already thought of that. :)
