A fellow JAP friend asked me what's for supper. I was undecided. Then thought, I have lots of potatoes and a roll of Bob Evans spicy sausage...why not a soup?...so, soup it was and might I add, it was delicious.


Enjoy!

How to Make ~ Comforting Chunky Potato Soup ~

Step-by-Step

  1. Place prepared potatoes in a saucepan and just cover with water. I added a little salt. Bring to a boil and simmer until tender.

    Drain and reserve 1 cup of the water they cooked in, Set aside.
  2. In the meantime, brown your sausage if using instead of ham ( I suggest trying the sausage once ). It gave it a great flavor.
  3. When potatoes are about done, in a dutch oven, melt butter and add the onion and garlic, continue cooking until translucent and tender, but not browned.
  4. Add the flour, red pepper flakes, black pepper and cook, stirring often for 3 - 4 minutes.
  5. Add the drained potatoes, liquid from potatoes, milk, salt, sugar, cheese and ham or sausage, stirring well to combine and simmer for 25 - 30 minutes, or until heated through and thickened, stirring frequently
  6. Stir in the parsley and ladle into bowls. I added some cheddar cheese and green onion slices. Would be great with a nice crusty slice of bread. I usually add a pinch or two of nutmeg to my cream soups as well. Entirely up to you. Add more salt if needed.

    Enjoy!
