Cooking With Canned Condensed Soup


October 2, 2006

Before opening a can of soup, shake it well. Then open the bottom of the can of soup. More of the soup will come out of the can cleanly this way.

I am not one to make gravy from scratch, so when I heard about this super easy trick, I had to try it for myself. When you need gravy for a crockpot meal, all you need is a can of cream of cheddar soup and a can of cream of mushroom soup.

Cream soups, like cream of mushrooms, make easy sauces for vegetables, sauces and casserole filling. Stock up on cream soups when they are sale, they are a great time saving staple to have in your pantry.

By mixing up creamy condensed soups with a fork before adding other ingredients, you will not have any lumps in it. The same thing goes for mayonnaise that's going to be used in making salad dressings

I am looking for recipes using canned creamed soups (cream of celery, mushroom, chicken). I have too many on hand right now, and want to use some up. It could be for any type of main dish, sauce or gravy.

Thanks much,
Debbie from IL

Easy KFC Copycat Gravy
1 10 ounce can cream of chicken soup
1 1 ounce packet turkey gravy
1 1 ounce packet brown gravy
1 (to 1 1/2) cups water
freshly ground pepper

Combine first four ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat until thickened. If too thick, add water to reach desired consistency. Add freshly ground pepper, to taste.

Mix a can of "cream of soup" with one can "chunky soup" to make a topping for biscuits, mashed potatoes, rice or noodles. I like cream of chicken with chicken noodle or cream of mushroom with beef noodle. Add a can of mixed vegetables, if desired.

Hashbrown casserole
2 lbs shredded hashbrown potatoes, thawed
1 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 c margarine, melted
1/2 c chopped onion
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 c colby cheese, grated

Preheat oven to 350*. Grease a 13x9 pan. Combine all ingredients except potatoes. Mix well. Fold in potatoes. Pour into greased pan and bake 35 minutes or until browned and bubbling.

Make an easy casserole: mix a can of cream soup, some precooked starch (rice, pasta, potato), cooked meat(chicken, pork, beef), veggies (peas, carrots, broccoli), season to taste (pepper, seasoned salt, Italian seasoning, Mrs. Grass). Bake until heated through. Top with cheese or diced tomato or salsa or breadcrumbs.

Upside down pot pies: heat a can of cream soup with broth or water until desired consistency. Add cooked chunks of chicken, turkey or beef. Add vegetables (like a can of mixed vegetables) as desired. I make my own pie crust but you can use a box/package mix or frozen. Just roll out and bake flat on a cookie sheet until golden brown and flaky. They don't need to be pretty. Place a couple big pieces on each deep plate and smother with a couple ladles of the soup/meat/veggie mixture.

Hope this helps!

A couple of my favorites.
Bacon Baked Chicken

4 slices bacon
4 chicken breasts, deboned
1 pint sour cream
2 10 3/4oz cans condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Wrap uncooked bacon slices around deboned chicken breasts and place the
breasts in a baking dish.

Mix sour cream and soup and spoon the mixture over chicken. Cover dish
with foil and bake for 1 hour. I uncover the last 15 minutes.
Bake several chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces. Mix with big can cream of chicken. Put one can of crescent rolls in bottom of 9x13 pan. Pour mixture on top and cover with another can of crescents. You can add cheddar and broccoli, or mixed veggies. Any number of additions to this is good.
1 package Hashbrowns (32 oz size)
1 can Cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup Margarine
1 can Cheddar cheese soup
1 cup Sour cream

Put hashbrowns in crock pot. Mix soups and sour cream together. Pour over hash browns. Cut up margarine and stir into hashbrowns. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours, stirring occasionally. I use cream of chicken. I also have added ham or real bacon bacon bits.
