Slow Cooker Sausage Potato Soup
One of the most popular meals for easy weeknight meals is potato soup. It’s simple to make, easy to customize, and so tasty. For this recipe, I add in andouille sausage to a basic potato soup before cooking it all day in a crock pot. When I serve it, I love putting a bunch of cheddar cheese, sour cream, and green onions to top for some extra flavor and color.
Now this recipe makes about 4-6 servings and is great as leftovers because it heats up really well. Additionally, you can put it in an airtight container once it has cooled to room temperature to store in the refrigerator or even the freezer. Just make sure to let it fully defrost before heating again!
