Expert Tips

Like bacon? Crumble some cooked bacon on top, along with green onions.

Pillsbury™ breadsticks and a simple side salad are a great way to round out this simple and satisfying meal.

If using American cheese from a block, refrigerate for at least an hour before shredding to firm up the cheese and simplify the process.

Tip: Saving a batch for later? Fill freezer bags with soup, then lay flat to freeze for easy stacking and freezer organization. More smart freezer bag tips.
