  1. Cover chopped potatoes with water and boil until fork tender.

  2. Drain and mash.

  3. If you have some leftover potatoes of some kind, start with the onion in your pan.

  4. Place chopped onion in oil in a large pan and cook on low until translucent.

  5. Add turkey, gravy, corn, peas, mashed potatoes, stock and salt and pepper and bring to a boil.

  6. Once soup is boiling well, add shredded cheese and cream and stir to combine.

  7. Turn off the heat and serve.

  8. You can garnish with bacon bits, green onions or chives, shredded cheese or croutons, but it’s great on its own too.
