Some of my mom’s favorite recipes use canned soup as an ingredient. This is one of those from her collection.
She’s made these scalloped potatoes for years so perhaps the recipe heralds from the 1950s when soup companies offered an array of quick-fix recipes.
For those of a certain age, you may remember that the Sunday night episodes of Lassie were sponsored by the Campbell’s soup company. Initially filmed in black and white (starting in 1954), the television show transitioned to color during the1965 season. Campbell’s was the sole sponsor during the show’s 19-year reign. In light of that, I guess you could say that this is an “Um, Um, GOOD!” recipe.
