Baked Potato & Corn Soup

Tonight I created another tasty feast! I even impressed Fiancé who gave this meal an “A+” – so you know it must be good!

I knew I wanted to create some sort of soup tonight for dinner, because it was such a cold and snowy day, but I didn’t know what. I did a little research on some of my favorite recipe websites and then crafted this amazing soup!

Ingredients
  • chicken sausage, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • salt and pepper to taste 
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 large baked potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 cup milk  
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
  • Shredded cheddar cheese

[This recipe makes 4 servings]

I started off cooking the chicken sausage, you could also use bacon for this step, but I didn’t have any in the house. I used the same sausage I used for my shaved Brussels sprouts from Trader Joe’s. I put it in a pan and let the sausage get hot and a little crispy. Then put the pan aside until the end.

While the sausage was cooking, I sliced up the potatoes.

In a larger pan sauté the onions and garlic until tender. Then add the flour, salt, pepper and mix well. Gradually add the broth.

Next add the milk, potatoes, corn and hot sauce.

Heat everything throughout.

Fiancé wanted his potatoes pretty soft so I covered the pan and let everything get a little more tender. Continue to stir until the soup is ready!

Garnish with the sausage (or bacon)

I wish I had some green onions to top on this too – that would have been a nice addition! Next time! I also sprinkled a little cheddar cheese on top for good measure. Cheddar makes everything better, right?

This is one of the best things I have made in a long time. It might tie for my new favorite thing to eat (and make) alongside my Spicy Thai Peanut Sprouts.

With the addition of the hot sauce, the soup had a little kick, which I enjoyed.

It was the perfect meal on a cold Winter night and it was so easy and quick to make with a few simple ingredients.

    YUM! That looks super tasty. Fiance must have been happy to get some meat =) I love love love potatoes and love love love soup, so I might have to give a dairy-free version of this a try.

    PS I'm officially seconding your musing that green onions would be a good addition (both on the eyes and on the taste buds!)

    Looks delicious and perfect for the weather. I also really like how you posted back to back recipes with one of the same main ingredients. I am always trying to plan meals that way, I might have to try this!!

    I can't wait to try making this soup. I love potato soup, but I have never attempted to make it on my own!

    WOW, your soup looks very good, especially the texture! I'm gonna try it, minus the turkey sausage, bacon for me! Last time I tried to make potato soup, it was like eating mashed potatoes, very thick, but tasty. My family laughed a me when I served that one.
