Easy 20 Minute Hot Sausage and Potato Soup

"There is no substitute for real homemade soup, or is there? As it turns out, this is a fast, easy and super tasty bowl of soup. I came up with this idea when I decided to "change up" my regular 20 minute potato soup - we were very happy with the results. Our D&D group devours this stuff! You can use milder sausage if you like, but the hot stuff sure makes it pop!"

Ready In:
1 bowl




  • Add sausage to a hot pan and break it up to crumble it as you cook it.
  • When the sausage is no longer pink, add the hash browns, seasonings and onion flakes. Cook the hash browns until they are slightly soft.
  • Wisk some of the chicken broth with the gravy mix in a bowl and slowly add to the pot.
  • Add the remaining chicken broth to the pot.
  • Mix gently and bring to a rolling boil over med-high heat.
  • Lower the heat to simmer and cook for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until hot all the way through.

  1. This was easy to make and very good. It took a little longer than expected to make but, it was very tasty and everybody enjoyed it.
  2. I don't know if easy even begins to describe how simple this is! I quartered the recipe since DBF was the only one eating (although I snagged a ladleful so that I could do a full review). The only thing I really measured was the broth, using 1 1/2 cups instead of the carton+can. I was initially a little leery of the gravy mix, but it definitely made the soup better! I used refrigerated diced potatoes with onions and Italian sausage since that is what I had on hand. I think my sausage could have been hotter (we like things really hot!) so next time I think I will use a spicier blend. All-in-all, a very easy pot of soup that hit the spot! Thanks angie_pangie! :-)


Hi, I'm a Wife and Mom of three girls ranging in age from 9 to 16. Two of my daughters have special needs, so life is never dull! We live in Michigan in a very rural area near the lake (lots of farmland and fishermen). My husband and I own a copywriting business and I am a food writer and blogger. I have a degree in culinary arts and love to entertain and cook. I'm constantly creating and searching for new and improved recipes to try out on our friends or on my blog. We spend a lot of time traveling and camping in the summer. Being self employed writers allows us to spend all sorts of time together and we really enjoy having the girls home all summer. We try to spend as much time as possible in the beautiful Michigan woods.
