Well, we are about to head to the airport in one hour. 😦 Leaving California to South Carolina again. It has been a wonderful week and the wedding was beautiful. I would add a picture but I left my memory card in my sisters laptop, next time. The weather has been BEAUTIFUL though. I am so excited for Fall! The best season of them all. So to kick off my Fall food I have a delicious potato noodle soup for you that can be cooked in just one pot.
I had made this recipe in the Spring on a cold day and it was so good but I didn’t want to post it since it was beginning to be Summertime. I was looking through my notebook and I ran across the recipe I wrote down and since it is beginning to look like Autumn, I was excited to cook it again! Did not disappoint.
I did change a little bit to that recipe though so go off of this one instead. 🙂
Potato Soup (one pot)
- 1 cube of butter
- 8 TBSP flour
- 1 small onion
- sausage (the link kind) or ground turkey ( around 1/2 lb)
- 2 cups milk
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 4 red potatoes, diced to about the size of a nickel
- 2 1/2 cups dry wide egg noodles
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper
- 1/2 cup corn
- 1 stalk celery
- 2 carrots, grated
- 1/2 cup cheese
- 1/4 cup parm cheese
- whatever other veggies you would like!
- Although this looks like a lot of ingredients, it’s really not! First cut all your veggies so they are ready to go. Get a big pot and melt your butter. Once melted, mix in your flour.
- Put in your diced onion, grated carrot, celery, diced potatoes, and cooked sausage or ground turkey. (I usually use the linked sausage that’s already cooked so I don’t have to use any more dishes. easy peasy.)
- Let saute for a couple minutes while frequently stirring it around the pot.
- Pour in your milk and chicken broth.
- Pour in your noodles.
- Pour in your garlic, salt, and pepper.
- Stir until it is thick and your noodles are cooked. (around 6-8 minutes) You can also give it a good stir, put it on low, cover the pot, and let it sit until cooked for about 10 minutes.
- Stir in your cheeses and corn until melted and corn is warmed.
I made my yummy Cornmeal Rolls to go with it. Yeah, I know we already had the carbs from the noodles and potatoes but it was sure good to dip in the soup on that cold day. Plus, if you had a lot of vegetables in your soup it makes you feel okay. 🙂
