Sausage Potato Soup Recipe

Sausage Potato Soup Recipe

After a full day of teaching and coaching, I'm often too tired to spend a lot of time preparing dinner. So I rely on this thick, chunky blend that I can have on the table in 30 minutes. The whole family enjoys the wonderful flavor of the smoked sausage. -Jennifer LeFevre, Hesston, Kansas

"quick and easy! I'm going to make it for my annual Relay for Life luncheon this year along with German potato salad, chicken and noodles and sauerbraten. If you like a little thicker soup, you can add more cheese or thicken with 1 1/2 T cornstarch mixed with a little water. Very good."

"Somewhat plain, needs more flavor, but I am giving it a 4 as my daughter really liked the potatoes. I added extra cheese and some basil and garlic salt."

"For this recipe I used Country Sausage and I didn't have the celery or the cheddar cheese so I decided not to put the celery in it and as a substitute for the cheddar cheese I used white American and parmesan cheese mixed together and it turned out really good"

"I used regular smoked sausage since my family loves that type of sausage (Holmes brand), I added 2 diced up tomatoes to the soup, 4 long peeled and sliced carrots instead of the 1/4 cup , instead of the garlic and onion powder I added i diced onion and 1 tsp minced garlic, 1/2 tsp of pepper instead of the 1/4, 2 cups of 1% milk instead of whole, 6 cups of water, 2 tbsp of of chicken flavor seasoning for my broth, I cut down to 4 potatoes instead of 6. Let it boil until potatoes were cooked and then simmer for about 20 min or so to let the flavors come to life. This was so good. It reminds me of Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup. I will def be making this again and again and to pot lucks and get together s. Thanks so much for the recipe."

"Delicious! I always double this recipe, but not the amount of potatoes. I add 1 (14.75 oz.) can creamed corn to the soup when I add the milk and cheese.....I really like the creaminess it adds. I also use turkey kielbasa rather than regular kielbasa. This soup has become a favorite at our house."

"Like many of you, I love soups. But, I'm very much a novice cook. I'm a grandpa, and a retired Soldier, not a chef. I decided to make this soup when my church group was having a chili and soup pot-luck dinner; I wanted something with sausage in it.

I made one and a half times the recipe and substituted garlic that I chopped up myself, so obviously it took longer time to prepare than suggested here. I think the real prep time is closer to an hour, for a newby like me, anyway.
The soup was terrific. I received many compliments. This will be a fall and winter staple for me, simply due to the simplicity of preparation and delicious taste."

"This is very tasty and easy to make; however, it is a bit peppery for me and my family so the next time I make it I'll reduce the amount by half. A plus about this recipe is that I was able to serve the soup without the meat for my vegetarian daughter and with the meat for the rest of the family."

"This was sooo tasty! I modified it a bit using Almond Milk instead and it tasted ah-mazing! Just a hint of sweetness from the milk and then I ended up dumping the whole bag of shredded cheese into the pot (why not?!). It only called for a cup and a half of broth but since I didn't have large enough saucepan for this I doubled the broth to cover the veggies in my large pot. I can't wait to make this recipe again! Definitely a favorite now!"

"This is the most delicious soup! My family truly loved it. I did however make a couple changes only because I used what was on hand. I used smoked sausage with cheese and since I only had 2% milk, I added another cup of shredded cheese to thicken up the broth. It was fantastic and one of the BEST soups that I have ever made. I will definitely be making this often."

"It was very good, and delicious. My husband liked it, too. And he is very picky, about trying new things, likes the old staple. Meat and Potato. Turned out very thick and creamy. I used velveeta cheese, because I didnt have any other kind of cheese. And added a little nutmeg, because I like nutmeg in potato dishes."
