Sweet Potato & Sausage Soup

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Melissa Spangler

I have reservations about this dish the first time I tasted it, but boy, was I wrong! Sweet potatoes & sausage are a great combination. Don't leave out the thyme, it is essential. Great comfort food on cold winter days. This is a Sugar Buster's recipe.

This soup was so, so good and was easy to make. I made it for Christmas, everyone loved it and admitted that they were skeptical about trying it. As always, your recipes are wonderful! Jennifer

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cooked diced sausage in a soup pot with a little of the butter for about five minutes.
  2. Drain making sure to pour off all accumulated fat.
  3. In the empty pot, melt the butter and saute the onion until soft.
  4. Add the thyme and sweet potatoes and cook for another five minutes.
  5. Add the cooked sausage, syrup and broth.
  6. Cover and simmer over low heat for 45 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  7. Stir in the cream. Warm but do not boil.
  8. If you want a soup with a thicker consistency, half way through the cooking time ladle some of the soup without the sausage into a blender or hand mixer and whirl making a creamy texture. Add this back to the soup pot and continue cooking.
