Subject: The SoupificationŠ of Leftover Scalloped Potatoes and Leftover Broccoli

When I prepared the Ham For Eternity last week, I fixed too many sides:
broccoli, scalloped potatoes, baked beans, red cabbage (OK, Rob fixed
the red cabbage). I'd used three potatoes for the dish and I doubt we
ate the equivalent of one of them. We have leftovers of all but the
My plan is to do a Musgovian Potato-Broccoli Soup. I'm figuring to fry
some bacon slices and then fry up some diced onion in the little bacon
fat that this stuff will give up. Then I'll heat the (soupy, btw) spuds,
mash or stick-blend them some and add the broccoli (I'll chop the
too-big for soup pieces), and maybe some half and half and/or chicken
broth and garnish with the cooked bacon pieces. Heat to a simmer, grind
little pepper and I'm thinking Gloria will wish I was cooking in her
kitchen while she and DH shovel out. I may sneak some shredded cheese
into the soup just because. (I deleted the rest of that last thought
because it was not very charitable.)
Sounds like a pretty good supper, doesn't it? It probably isn't what
anyone else might serve with the leftover gyros from yesterday's lunch
at the Midtown Global Market location of Holy Land Deli, but I don't
much care about that. Unless it's Bubba Vic who scoffs and then I'll
be penitent. Yeah, right.
I could add some ham bits, but I the bacon is verging on the Musgovian,

Sounds good Barb. Also very creative. Let us know how it turns out.

I've used leftover scalloped potatoes to make soup. It's a great way to use
up those spuds. Since there's already milk or cream in them I just add
enough chicken broth to make it soup-like. Yes, bacon bits or diced ham go
in the mix. I wing it on herbs and definitely stir in grated cheddar.
