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.

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 1 hour 10 min
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: 6

Ingredients

  • 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
  • Salt & Pepper

Instructions

  1. Melt butter in a stock pot or pan large enough for at least 3 quarts of liquid.
  2. Saute onions and green peppers until transparent
  3. Drop in cubed pieces of Kielbasa Sausage. Let cook about 15 minutes
  4. Add the potatoes.
  5. Fill pan with water to about 2 inches above the ingredient mixture. Let simmer on medium heat for about 30 minutes.
  6. When liquid is bubbling and potatoes are tender, add the chicken broth, poultry seasoning.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Remove about a cup of the liquid and mix it with the flour, Drop this back into the soup for thickening. Mix well with soup and serve.

The perfect serving dish for a soup of this kind is a huge cup with a handle on it. Take it right to where you need it, relax, and enjoy.

 

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!

      Soups are one of my favorite go to meals. The problem is I generally make too much, but it works out well. Plenty for sharing! Thank you for your visit and comment!

      I've also made this with other leftover sausages, even with Hebrew Beef Franks...all taste great! I use mashed potatoes flakes to thicken. I love soups...

      @ecogranny: Why, thank you Graceonline! I would do the kale version, too, as we do a vegetarian style meal now and then. Appreciate the visit and comment, dear lady!

      When we still ate meat fairly often, I loved this very combination, both as a stir-fry and as a soup, so my mouth is watering. These days, I use kale, vegetable broth and garlic in place of the sausage and chicken broth, but I know my meat-loving family members would love your recipe. Thank you for sharing it. Brings back lots of memories.
