Have you ever noticed that when it comes to comfort foods, they usually just aren’t that pretty to look at?

That is because comfort foods were never meant to make you go “ooo” and “ahhh.” Comfort foods are meant to make you sigh and smile.

Easy Cheesy Potato & Sausage Soup - This soup is as easy to make as it is flavorful and filling! Creamy potato soup with smoked sausage and cheese. You can't get much better than that.

That is the case with this simple, yet comforting potato soup. It won’t win a beauty contest, but it will win your heart.

To Make this Recipe You will Need:

  • butter
  • smoked beef sausage
  • onion
  • chicken or beef broth
  • half & half
  • russet potatoes
  • parsley
  • black pepper
  • sea salt
  • sharp cheddar cheese
  • Instant Pot

To begin, press the “sauté” button on your Instant Pot.

Add in butter and beef smoked sausage. Cook it for a few minutes until the sausage is browned, stirring occasionally.

Scoop the sausage into a dish and set it aside for now.

Add in diced onion and cook until it is tender. Press the “cancel” button.

Add in broth, half & half, potatoes, parsley, pepper, and salt. Stir it all together.

Close and seal the Instant Pot. Press the “soup” button and let it run a 30 minute cycle.

When it is done cooking, use an immersion blender and give the soup just a few pulses. Just enough to thicken the broth. This allows the starch in the potatoes to be the thickening agent without needing to add other things.

Press the “sauté” button again. Add in shredded cheese and the browned sausage.

  1. This recipe for potato soup with cheese and sausage sounds delicious. I’m vegetarian so I’ll be using plant based sausage. I’m planning to make this tomorrow night, hence the one star. I’ll update it after I’ve made it. Can the left-overs be frozen?
