Sausage and Potato Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This recipe was given to me by a coworker and she said it was quite possibly the best soup she had ever eaten. I made the soup today and indeed it is very tasty! With cold weather approaching (someday), this will be quite the comfort food. I did halve the recipe since there is only two of us, because a whole recipe makes a large pot of soup. It is quite easy to make! I may use more hot sausage next time. A whole recipe makes about 16 cups of soup.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Fry sausage and onion together, do not drain.
  2. Put the sausage and onion in a large sauce pan.
  3. Add all of the other ingredients and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are tender as you would like.
  4. Add 1 tablespoons of black pepper and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  5. Thin with milk.

Tasty and easy to make. It's a very rich and thick soup. DH thought it was sausage gravy when he first saw it. (we like thick soup!) made as directed, but I did add some celery seed (a must have in potato soup) Looking forward to left overs tomorrow night!

Enjoyed this soup so much. Super easy to make with ingredients I always have in the pantry/fridge. I used low-fat versions of the creamed soup and it still had great flavor and texture. I loved the little bite of heat from the hot sausage. I made the full amount and my family of six pretty much nailed it. Very filling and comforting on a bitter cold day. Thanks for the recipe.
