Last Night I cooked up some potato soup In my thermos.

put the following in a 1 cup measuring cup, 1 potato diced, 1 teaspoon of chives, 1\4 teaspoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of bacon bits (real ones), 1 tablespoon of diced onions. two tablespoons of cheddar cheese.

mix and place in a 2 cup measuring cup, and microwave 2 tablespoons of butter, 1 tablespoon of flour, 1 cup of milk heat to boiling.

add the other ingredients, and heat to boiling, and stirring. The potatoes will still not be cooked but heated.

dump everything in your 16 ounce thermos, and let set, the thermos will cook the soup as it sits over the next 4 to 5 hours just in time for lunch.

I had my wife to taste test it this morning, and it was pretty good.

you could also omit the salt and add some chicken bouillon. also fresh cracked pepper would work well with this.

Hello-so many blogs-I almost missed your blog. Potato Soup is one of my favorite soups to eat. If fact, I wish I had a thermos of it right now.

Didn't have a chance to look at your other thermos blogs but had some time so I stopped by. I don't think I have a good enough thermos to try that. I don't think they would keep the heat well enough. Great idea though since I love soup1

Just playing around with it, but the carry over heat really does work. Not sure I would try cooking raw chicken or pork this way since you could not guarantee the proper temp. I did try ramen noodles but they soak up all the broth and leave you nothing but mush. campbell's soup both condensed and chucky versions do work good in a thermos.

Before I retired, I didn't care for food in a thermos because it was always overcooked. Your innovation would have been very welcomed.
