  • Cayenne pepper
  • 3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (3 ounces)

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large saucepan, stir the mashed potatoes with the cream over moderate heat until warmed through. Whisk in the stock. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne and bring to a simmer. Ladle the soup into bowls, garnish with the Cheddar and scallion and serve.

Suggested Pairing

This creamy soup is best accompanied by a richly textured white that has some crispness and a note of spice. A vibrant Pinot Blanc from Alsace would be perfect.
