Potato Soup and Corned Beef Panini – Lunchbag Week 33

I still had corned beef left over from St. Patrick’s Day, so I needed to use it up, and I bought WAY too many potatoes when they were on sale, so this is a “use it or throw it away” lunch. I made the paninis using my Pampered Chef grill pan and grill press, but you could use a panini maker or just a skillet and a brick wrapped in foil and get the same results. Use sourdough bread (rye would be even better if you family will eat it – mine won’t) and layer on some corned beef, Swiss cheese,and coleslaw, and grill until toasty. The Potato Soup is simple, too.
2 Tbsp butter or bacon grease
1 medium onion, chopped
4 cups peeled, diced potatoes
8 oz. shredded cheddar
3 cups chicken stock
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp ground mustard
1 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
In a large soup pot melt butter or bacon grease (use the bacon grease if you have it). Add onion and cook until brown. Add chicken stock, bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and add potatoes. Cook until fork-tender. Whisk together cream, Worcestershire sauce, and mustard. Stir into soup and heat almost until boiling. Reduce heat, add cheddar, salt, and pepper.

  1. This makes me want to go buy another corned beef. What a perfect soup and sandwich pair. Potato soup is my favorite. Thanks for the reminder.

    I wish it were April 17th.
