Bratwurst and Potato Soup

Sharing is caring!

My two favorite things about cooler weather are potato soup and socks. I have missed them both immensely through the long, hot summer.

There is just something comforting to me about socks. They make me feel warm and cozy. They also keep all of my toes together, which is good because my pinky toes have really taken a beating this year. Socks come in such a variety of colors too! And they can make even the ugliest feet cute. See?

But the absolute best thing about socks is that with the help of a hardwood floor, you can live out your dreams of being in the Ice Capades.

Not that I have ever wanted to be in the Ice Capades.

Anywoo, potato soup is a lot like socks. It’s warm and cozy and can be made in a variety of different ways. It cannot make you have cute feet, but it sure is delicious!

This potato soup is my new favorite. I recommend that you triple this recipe so that everyone will have enough for seconds and thirds. It is so so so so so so good.

Just the thought of it makes me happy. It will make you happy too. Just like a new pair of socks.

1 medium onion, chopped

2 medium carrots, shredded

1 T butter

2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced

1 1/2 cups chicken broth

12 ounces of cooked and sliced bratwurst

Melt the butter in a large pot over medium high heat. Saute onions and carrots and a little salt and pepper for a few minutes until soft and tender.

Add potatoes, broth, and sausage to the pot. Season with salt and pepper.

Cover and simmer for 20 minutes until the potatoes are very tender. Remove the sausage and puree the potatoes with a stick blender until the soup is nice and thick but still has a few chunks of potatoes.

Add the sausage back to the pot.

  1. Hey there,
    Some how I finally found your blog all the way over here in Germany. I knew you had one but could never find it. I have enjoyed reading about all the dishes you have been making. Can’t wait to try them all! This one will be especially good for the cold weather ahead! I also love your writing style! Keep up the good work- you’re international now;)

    1. Wow! Germany! You should be able to find some fantastic bratwurst over there! So glad you found me. I hope to see you around here soon! 🙂

  2. It was good to see you and the kiddos at the bounce house this morning. The blog I was telling you about is karaspartyideas.blogspot.com. on the right under categories, you can find tons of party ideas. I make the same pumpkin pancakes. We all love them!

    1. It was great to hang out with you yesterday! The kids had such a great time. Thanks for the link. I’m going to check her out!

  3. Found your recipe on foodgawker. It’s delicious, but I think the broth measurement is wrong. I used 3 cups and the consistency was fine- when I only used 1 and a half it didn’t cover the potatoes enough to simmer them. Still though, great recipe!
