Recipe by Chris Breese
"This is a hearty and rich potato soup with cream and spicy andouille sausage. Serve with fresh garlic bread. Use Polish sausage in place of the andouille for a slightly different flavor."

andouille sausage, sliced into rounds
russet potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
1 3/4 cups
fresh spinach, chopped
grated Parmesan cheese
Let me just start off by saying that I have made this 3 times in 3 weeks and I am not one to repeat a recipe, let alone this often! There were some things changed, but not much. First, I used Hot Italian Sausage with casings removed instead of Andouille. Browned that with some minced garlic and onion, no butter or oil needed, and drained the meat. I added cooked bacon and this was a great addition! Used skim milk and fat free half and half, sprinkled cayenne, then with some garlic cheesy bread you have an AWESOME dinner!! (The Hot sausage does add a little bit of a red greasy layer on top- wish I knew how to eliminate that, but I don’t think it is possible with this kind of sausage, and that isn’t changing bc we like spicy!!) My fiancé begs for this now! Quick, easy, and delish!
I made this recipe for some clients and it was average. My professional opinion is that it was unnecessarily rich. A little goes a long way, but the bold Andouille flavor was an important element.
I love this recipe, it is great to taste easy to make, I can easily serve with a clear conscience as i love food and i lover fat. I always put double cream in all my cream soups. sometimes I substitute cabbage for spinach. or bacon for sausage I always fry my meats prior to adding to the soups , I then brown my white flour in a frying pan mix it with some of the liquids pour it in the soup to thicken it up , this makes the soup really thick. YUM YUM thank you for the great recipe.
This recipe was really great! It reminded me of the yummy soup at The Olive Garden. It's not thick but has a good spicy flavor and tastes delicious. I took it to a church potluck and it was a hit!
Very tasty soup....used half polish sausage and half andouille.........yum........the spinach is great in it....finished it of in the crockpot on low......will definitely make again......thankyou!!
This soup was great! My soup hating family loved it. I did add some chopped celery in when I sauted the onions. When I served it I sprinkled some Cayenne pepper to my bowl after adding the cheese to give it an extra kick.
This is a good recipe ... i used polish sausage and little smokies and added some cajun seasoning to give it some pep. Also used less garlic. I made a big pot for our Christmas party with friends, they all loved it!
I used Turkey Polska Kielbasa. Used half & half instead of heavy cream because that is what I had. Added ground cayenne pepper to give this recipe a little heat. Amazing recipe and Oh! so good. I like a thicker soup so I used a small amount of corn starch with some of the hot soup that was added back to the pot to thicken. Prepared this tonight and will have it for dinner tomorrow. Can't wait!! Thank you! A keeper!
