Bargain Recipe- Kroger

This weeks bargain recipe is a soup. With a 10 lb potato bag on sale for $2.99, you can get alot of soup and side dishes for very little money! If you have a family of 4 like us it will be easy to freeze what is leftover for a yummy lunch later.

I will not expense spices since most of us have them on hand. W/C means with coupon. Check out Stretching a Buck Kroger deals here to see more great deals.

Potato, Bacon, Cheddar Soup

3 cups peeled and cubed potatoes ( On sale 10lb bag for $2.99) .99
1/2 cup chopped celery .70

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese ( Kroger shredded cheese on sale 3 for $10) 2.49
1 cup cooked Bacon (Private Selection on sale $3) 1.50 (You can also substitute cooked hamburger for a more hearty soup)

Sounds yummy! I made potato soup last week, soup today (not sure what to call it...ground turkey and vegetable), and will be making bean with ham soup later in the week. Mmmm...tasty and cheap. :)
