Now that the kids are back in school, one might think I would have more time for myself. I foolishly thought so, too. The fact is, however, that last week was crazy. In an attempt to do everything between the time they left for school to when they came home, I barely had time to blink, let alone eat a decent lunch. I’m vowing to remedy that this week, though, along with gathering some Labels for Education, too.

Except I added my own spin on it with a mix of fresh ingredients. And bacon. Renaming them the Cheesy Bacon and Mushroom Baked Potato Toppers.

To prepare my potatoes, I first picked up a can of Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom soup at my local grocery store. Along with that, I chose some fresh mushrooms, a small onion, shredded Cheddar cheese, bacon to crumble on top, and the potatoes of course. I also picked up a pack of Pepperidge Farm crackers to help gather up any of the soup that may spill out.

It’s melty, it’s cheesy, what is there not to love? It’s an entire meal in itself, and takes almost no time to come together. The topper on top of the potato topper, though, is that with every Campbell’s can and Pepperidge Farms product bought, I’m helping support my kids’ school by gathering points for #Labels4Edu!
