Easy Potato Soup
Starting with hash browns means no peeling potatoes which makes this an incredibly fabulous, yet simple soup.

Terrific Tidbit: I like using Greek yogurt as it is richer, and creamer. If you feel better, you can add condiments such as green onions, turkey bacon or cheese
Nutritional Nugget: Greek yogurt is higher in calcium than plain yogurt.
