When autumn falls upon Fountain Valley, California, Susan Pursell simmers up this comforting soup. The hearty sausage slices, white kidney beans and colorful kale will keep your gang asking for seconds.
"This soup is super easy to make! Since it starts with a box of au gratin potatoes, you don't have to peel or slice them," shares Sherry Dickerson of Sebastopol, Mississippi. "A co-worker recommended the recipe to me. Now my husband requests it often."
"My husband usually doesn't care for low-fat dishes," notes Natalie Warf of Spring Lake, North Carolina. "So after finishing a bowl of this rich-tasting soup, he was surprised to learn that it's very low in fat."
“My garden produced a bumper crop of sweet potatoes and I created this soup to help use them up,” says Kathy Rairigh from Milford, Indiana. You’ll love the creamy texture and flavors of garlic and thyme.
“I really like to make potato cheese soup from scratch,“ says Karen Pigmon of Corning, California. “But one night we were in a hurry, so I added a few ingredients to a can of potato soup instead. It was so good that now I always keep a few cans on hand…it’s so quick and easy! Serve it in bread bowls, and it’s always a big hit with kids.“
"A good friend who runs a bed-and-breakfast game me this creamy potato soup recipe that's become a winter favorite," recalls Kristi Teague of Southside, Tennessee. "A dash of hot sauce a little basil give it special flavor."
