This soup makes a great meal on a cold winter night. Just add a salad and some hot crusty french bread. This also makes a first course for dinner. I like to make this when I have left over baked chicken. If using as a first course or appetizer servings would be for 4. If using as a main dish servings would be for 2
This is my favorite recipe for potato soup. It's a copycat of the one they use to serve at the St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). The recipe originally called for shredding your potatoes, but I never could get them to cook that way. I know they should cook faster, but I never could get it to work.
I wanted a simple figure friendly soup so I came up with this. It has plently of flavor with not many calories. Is sure doesn't hurt that it warms you from head to toe. Taste even better the next day!!
A hearty soup for those cold days. Use either Polish Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage. Kielbasa gives a sweet taste to the soup while Smoked sausage gives a great background for the beans. It's delish either way.
