Sweet Italian Sausage Potato Soup

Ann Lombardi


This recipe is so easy to make. You could add a touch of chopped kale if you do not like green onions. The garnish (not shown here) makes it look more appetizing. A friend of mine made this for me on a cold winter evening. It is very hearty and tastes delicious. You can use whatever type of sausage you wish.

How to Make Sweet Italian Sausage Potato Soup


  • 1Peel and chop 6 large potatoes and put into a large pot.
  • 2Add water to the potatoes but just to cover the top of them. Do not add too much water!
  • 3Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring cream cheese block to room temperature.
  • 4Boil potatoes but be sure not to overcook so they do not become mushy. Do NOT drain the water off of the potatoes.
  • 5Remove casing from sweet italian sausage and fry the sausage until done. Drain the grease off of the meat.
  • 6Add the room temperature cream cheese into the potatoes and water and incorporate until well mixed in. NOTE: I removed the potatoes with a strainer and used a whisk to incorporate the cream cheese into the potato water. Then I added the potatoes back into the pot.
  • 7Add the cooked sausage into the potato and cream cheese mixture.
  • 8Garnish with green onions and shredded cheddar cheese.
