Scalloped potatoes to potato soup??

I made scalloped potatoes the other day. The leftovers really aren't going and I don't want to waste the food. I was wondering if I could turn it into Potato soup some how.

Here's the recipe I used for the scalloped potatoes:

6ish potatoes peeled and sliced.
flour
butter
salt ad pepper
ham
milk

layer potatoes, butter, ham, flour, salt and pepper. Pour milk over top. Bake at 350 for an hour or until potatoes are cooked through.



So I was thinking I could cook some onions in butter. Then use the mixer on the scalloped potatoes and add to onions and butter and cook down with milk.

Do you think this will work? Anything I'm missing? I don't have bacon, but can add bacon bits to the top.

id saute some onions, carrots and celery, some chicken broth, milk, chop up the scalloped potatos, maybe throw in some shredded cheese, you could dump in a box of mac n cheese noodles and sauce packet in.

That's what I'm thinking. I'm on a mission to use up an entire 10 lb bag of potatoes. This was the last of them. It kills me that they usually go to waste, so I'm trying to put a stop to that!! lol

When I get those 10lb bags I always do a baked potato bar night with the biggest ones in the bag and make a bunch of extras for fried potatoes or in case someone wants seconds. Its a great way to use up small amounts of leftover this or that and it obligates about 1/2 the bag to something.

I often use leftover mashed potatoes to make potato soup- same principle. You could saute your veggies, add broth and your potato casserole, and cook for a while then put it in a blender for a bit, maybe till just a little chunky, then top with your bacon bits and some cheese.
