What soup fits your current mood? With the days turning cooler, and the nights requiring sweaters, my mood requires warmth and comfort. So when I think Progresso soups, and I’m thinking of all the fresh ingredients in each one, I immediately turn to a heartier soup when the mood strikes. And strike it did.
It was a cold and wet evening and I wanted something quick and easy, but I didn’t just want a simple bowl of soup, though that works just fine for me most nights too. I decided that these Steak and Roasted Russet Potato Cups were the way to go, and they all started with a can of Progresso Rich & Hearty Steak and Roasted Russet Potato soup that I picked up at Walmart. We always buy extras because it is wonderful to have on hand for a soup and sandwich night, pulling dinner together quickly.By the way, Walmart has the best selection of these soups in all the varieties! Just look at that selection!! Once we got back home, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with this soup. I had some leftover veggies, which I added to the soup along with a teaspoon of corn starch to thicken it up just a tiny bit. We threw in some rice for even more thickening and combined all of it into little puff pastry cups in a muffin tin. And at the end of it all, we had these delicious Steak and Roasted Russet Potato Cups that the family absolutely loved. They were such a simple weeknight dinner, thrown together fairly quickly and gobbled up at the end almost just as fast. The best part is that using Progresso soup is the perfect way to get creative in the kitchen and come up with simple, yet delicious meals- even on nights you just feel like soup.
