Hearty Sausage and Potato Soup

I love expanding my soup repertoire! It's been COLD the last few weeks, and soup is one of my favorite dinners. At least when I eat soup it warms me up enough so I don't have to wear 5 layers of clothes at the dinner table. I also love smoked sausage, and potatoes, and cheese, so I knew this Hearty Sausage and Potato Soup from April's blog would be right up my alley. And I was right. It's super hearty and super delicious, and my whole family ate it up.

I have lots of other potato and/or sausage soups that we enjoy, including Northwoods Bean Soup (with sausage!), Spicy Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup, and Potato Soup. But now, thanks to April and Secret Recipe Club I have another great soup option for these winter days.

Hearty Sausage and Potato Soup

2 Tbsp. butter
1 small onion, chopped
1 pound smoked or Polish Sausage (Cut in 1/4 inch slices and then into half-moons)
8 medium potatoes, peeled and cut in large chunks
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded colby jack cheese
1 can evaporated milk
2 Tbsp. flour

Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add onion and cook till onion is translucent. Add potatoes, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Bring to a boil, then continue cooking over medium-high heat for 15 minutes. Potatoes should just be starting to fall apart. Add smoked sausage and cook for 5 minutes more.

Combine flour with 3 Tbsp. water and whisk until smooth. Add it to the soup and stir until smooth and slightly thickened. Add evaporated milk and cheese and cook till cheese is melted, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings if needed. Serves 6-8.


  1. So glad to hear that you liked the soup! It's one of my favorites, and you reminded me I need to make it again soon. Thanks for your kind review, and happy reveal day!

  2. I could use a bowl of this right now. It's been so cold in PA and this would definitely warm me up. Great SRC recipe!
