Sausage Potato Soup

This is one of my favorite soup recipes. It is delish! I consider it a bit healthier than your traditional potato soup, i guess because it has a lot more veggies! :)

Sausage Potato Soup
(from Taste of Home)
Serves 6.
  • 1/2 pound smoked kielbasa or polish sausage
  • 6 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 celery rib, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced carrot
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp minced fresh parsley
In a large saucepan, brown sausage. Drain & set aside.
In the same pan, combine the potatoes, corn, broth, celery, carrot & seasonings.

 I doubled the recipe here. Used about 5 baking potatoes, but doubled everything else. It turned out perfectly!

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Cover & simmer for 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. 

Add the milk, cheese, parsley & sausage. Cook & stir over low heat until cheese is melted & soup is heated through.

 Mmmm! Delish! :) (Used turkey sausage in this one.)

Serve with a yummy salad or a french bread. (or both!)
