$0.97 per serving ~ Creamy Wild Rice Soup and Garlic & Cheese Biscuits

It's been grey and rainy for nearly a week... it's time for SOUP!

Creamy Wild Rice Soup ~ $0.77 per serving
1 package quick-cooking long grain and wild rice ($1.00) ~ Rice a Roni
4 cups milk ($1.20)
1 can condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted ($0.70)
8 ounces easily melted cheese ($1.50) ~ American
1/2 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled ~ ($1.75)

1. In a large pot, prepare rice according to package direction, omitting any butter or oil.
2. Stir in milk, soup and cheese, mix well over low heat until cheese is melted.
3. Garnish with crumbled bacon.
Makes 8 servings

The Verdict
I served this with Garlic & Cheese Biscuits made with Colby Jack. The soup was DELICIOUS. A few changes... it is a bit salty so I think I would use a less-salty cheese and low sodium bacon in the future. I'd also change out some of the milk for half and half so that the broth would be a bit quicker. Jim was crazy about this one.
