Potato Soup with Kielbasa

Share or Save for Later

This is a soup recipe that is perfect for the winter months. It is cheesy, filled with potatoes, satisfying and savory. This soup is very easy to make and stores wonderfully.

It can be used as a precursor to dinner or as dinner itself. I like to serve this soup with some crusty bread or garlic toast.

When I first tasted potato soup, I found it rather dull and knew that I had to do something to make it more exciting, more tasty and more filling.

This is the dish I came up with. I absolutely love it! Adding in the cut kielbasa was the perfect choice, as it made it more of a filling dish.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I use a meat other than Kielbasa?

You could use any type of sausage you would like. I have even cooked up a pound of ground sausage and added that in. I have also used ground beef, chicken and turkey.

            How do I store this soup?

This soup should be cooled completely and then placed into an airtight container. It will last in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.

            Can I freeze the soup?

You can, however, there will be a slight difference in the appearance when the soup thaws, maybe a slight separation in the broth.
