Kielbasa Potato Soup
When it cools off and the weather starts to get a bit miserable one of my favorite comfort foods is home-made soup. This is not just any soup, though. It is a combination that usually changes every time I make it. It depends on the contents of the refrigerator and my taste cravings. Of these combinations one recipe has developed that I have repeated. That soup is my Kielbasa Potato Soup. It is a blend of mild Kielbasa sausage, green peppers, onions, and potatoes. It started out the first time as sausage, taters, and onions. Little did I know I would find a new favorite soup combo.
- 1 Pkg Kielbasa (Or Polish Sausage) - Cubed
- 1/2 Medium Onion - sliced thin
- 1 Green Pepper - sliced thin
- 2 T Butter
- 5 Medium Potatoes - diced in 1/2" pieces
- 2 Cans Chicken Broth
- 1/4 C flour (optional for thickening)
- 1/4 t Poultry Seasoning

Kielbasa Potato Soup is easy to create and the effort really is in the dicing and slicing of the veggies. It is a hearty mix and a belly warmer on those really cold days. Need a few variations? Instead of Kielbasa, use bacon, ham, Spam, or leave out the meat all together and enjoy it a la vegetarian style. I would recommend adding a can of corn or maybe even black-eyed peas for more color. It is now your recipe. Tell me how you switched it up... Enjoy!
