Lunch Menu: Potato Soup & Open Faced Bacon Sandwich
1 serving of potato soup
If you wish you can prepare a homemade version of potato soup. Simply boil the peeled potatoes, drain and slightly smash. Add a bit of milk along with salt and pepper. If you have leftover mashed potatoes, just add milk to make a soup as thin or as thick as you wish. Heat and eat.
As to preparing the Bacon Sandwich, prepare 2-3 strips of bacon in the microwave using paper towels to catch the excess oil. Toast a slice of bread or the bottom (or top) of a bun or roll in the oven or on the stove top using reduced fat margarine. Once the bread has reached a golden brown state, remove and top immediately with the bacon and a slice of cheese. You will need to break the bacon strips in half in order to get them to fit onto the bread. Return to the oven if necessary in order to melt the cheese.
