Sausage and Potato Soup

We love soup in our house! We probably eat soup at least once a week in the winter and this one is our new favorite. Two things led to this recipe creation. First, my family likes cream based soups as opposed to tomato based so I've been looking for more of those recipes. We also had an abundance of sausage from the hog we killed recently. With those 2 things in mind, my daughter and I came up with this soup. We tweaked it over a few weeks and have been eating it at least once a week ever since, with homemade bread of course!

It is the perfect soup for a busy night, being that you can stir it all together and be ready to eat in 30 minutes or less. It's creamy and filling, with the slightest amount of spice. It's versatile as far as what vegetables you want to add or leave out to suit your family's taste. I'm sure there are recipes out there for something similar, but this is our version and our last task was to name it! Since, my daughter helped me make it, I let her name it, and the official name is....... "Pig in a Potato Patch Soup."
