Sausage and Potato Soup

"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."

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. Me and my family absolutely LOVED this soup. It is easy to make and it is a great thick and hearty soup for the winter. Easy to make with 0 leftovers. Thank you so much for sharing such a great recipe.
  4. This is one of the BEST potato soups I have had. I cut everything in half but the potatoes, as we like a lot of potatoes. Delish! Thanks!
  5. Wonderful soup! So easy. I didn't have any hot sausage just the regular jimmy dean. Very tasy and will make again! Family really enjoyed. Thanks!
