Since it’s gotten so cold outside I have been wanting any kind of soup that I can find. I keep a recipe folder in my email box and whenever I get an email I tag it for that folder and archive it. So on Sunday I started going through some of those emails to see if I could find something to cook this week that was new and I ran across this recipe from one of my Mom’s co-workers. It was good as she gave it but I’ve tweaked it just a little more to our liking. That’s the beauty of simple recipes — you can change them up to just how you like them and you can be pretty sure that they’ll still taste great! And this recipe makes a lot of soup so you might want to half it if there are just two of you.
Sausage and Potato Soup
32 oz bag of frozen diced hash browns (or about 3 lbs of peeled and diced potatoes) (the more potatoes the better)
1 1/2 to 2 lbs sausage browned (can be hot or mild)
2 chopped onions
4 cups of water
4 cups of milk
28 oz of chicken broth
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cans cream of celery soup
Mix everything and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 45 minutes. Serve with cheese — pepper jack or parmesan go especially well.
