Welcome, September! {Potato Soup}

After enduring an excruciatingly hot August, we rang in September with some yummy potato soup! It’s still over 100 degrees outside, but we’re hoping for cooler weather, almost willing it to come, by pretending it’s cool outside! This has been a record breaking summer, and for us, that’s really saying something. We have plenty of heat and humidity every year, but never in my life have I experienced 119 degree actual temperature until this year. I was thankful for the cold winter we had last year, for I well knew what summer was preparing for us! Turns out I was right. Hmmm…that’s probably a first! I should write that down in my diary! Oh wait, I just did. Sort of.

Okay, sorry. On to the soup!

I originally found this recipe at my friend, Paula’s, blog. I searched for it to link you to her recipe, but I can’t find it now. So, here’s the recipe that was (is?) on her site.

Slow-Cooker Potato Soup

Ingredients:
3 lbs. red potatoes (or whatever kind you like)
1 small onion cut into wedges. (I just chop mine up)
1 lb. hickory smoked sausage
32. oz. chicken broth
1  tsp. dill weed
salt and pepper to taste
6 oz. half & half

Directions:
Chop potatoes into chunks, chop onion as you like, and slice sausage into bite-size pieces. Combine everything except the half & half in slow cooker and stir. Cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Add half & half to slow cooker 30 min. before serving. We have rolls with our soup. 🙂

Whether it feels like autumn where you are or not, this will certainly bring it to your soul.

  1. This sounds yummy! Do you use the red potatoes? What kind of sausage do you use?

    I used to make a Baked Potato Soup (not crockpot, unfortunately), but then I discovered Bear Creeks potato soup (dry mix in a pouch). It's SOOOOO easy to make, just add water. Tons of salt, so there's quite a tradeoff.

  2. I think it's Hillshire Farms sausage. It costs about $2.50. Yes, I use red potatoes. Terry doesn't like creamy potato soup, he likes chunks of potatoes to be in it, so we love this recipe. I've thought about adding bacon bits to it for an added flavor. And I LOVE any and all crockpot recipes! 🙂

  3. Hello, dear Valerie!! Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog. 🙂

    I too LOVE crock pot recipes! I need to start posting a few more of my favorites on my own blog. I certainly appreciate those that you share. Potato soup is one of my very favorite foods, so I look forward to trying this one.

    Hasn't this summer been one for the record books?? My goodness it's been HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT HOT!! I do hope your temperatures start to decline soon. We are starting to see the temperatures slowly move back down the thermometer, for which I am most thankful. I am currently awaiting with trepidation the August electric bill.

    I have missed you during my absence, hope you are well, and look forward to getting reacquainted through the blog world! Have a *wonderful* Labor Day weekend!
