This is the time of year for all things soup! Of course I am a huge year round soup lover but this time of year I am particularly fond of it!! This amazingly easy Sausage Potato Cheddar Soup is a tried and true family favorite. It is so good that you will be tilting that bowl to get the last drop onto that spoon. Or if you are like my husband you will just lift it up to your face and slurp it right out of there.
This lip smacking Sausage Potato Cheddar Soup is a combination of lean pork sausage, chunks of russet potatoes, onion, carrots and celery in a creamy cheddar broth. For added deliciousness top with a dollop of sour cream, shredded sharp cheddar and chopped green onions. This pot of heavenly goodness comes together in about forty-five minutes which includes some simmer time.
Have you tried any of my other delicious soups! 30 Minute Stuffed Pepper Soup, Creamy Alfredo Lasagna Soup and Savory Cabbage Roll Soup are just a few of our favorites. In my opinion you can never have too many great soup recipes.
