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
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
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.
