Crock Pot Sausage Potato Soup Recipe
We have always loved potato soup but I needed to jazz it up a little. This crock pot sausage and potato soup recipe is perfect for those nights when you need something hearty but don’t have much time.
Just throw it all in the slow cooker and come home to dinner waiting. The ground sausage really gives the soup a kick and blends perfectly with the potatoes.
It is the best combination and our entire family loves this soup which really says a lot. Some of my people are picky and others turn up their noses at soup.
So for this to satisfy everyone, you know it is really a great recipe. 🙂
You’ll need a great crock pot to make this slow cooker sausage potato soup.
They are awesome because you can set them to start later, or to stop and switch to warm once the dinners are ready.
If you have been following me for awhile, you already know how much I love my Ninja cooker. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker for recipes that call for that.
It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean and the removable insert is non-stick so it’s so easy to clean up after you enjoy your meal. It has become, hands down, my favorite kitchen appliance.
If you want to save yourself even more time (don’t we all?) then I really recommend these Crockpot liners. They make clean up a breeze. Instead of scrubbing and washing the pot, you can just toss the liner. It is practically no clean up… seriously, no clean up at all.

Brown the ground sausage and drain the fat. If you have a Ninja cooking system, you can brown the meat in the same pot.
Add everything else except the whipping cream to slow cooker. I like to cook it on low for several hours.
30 minutes before serving add the whipping cream. Cover and cook for 15 minutes to 30 minutes to let everything blend together.

What to serve with crock pot sausage potato soup recipe?
This meal is a delicious one pot meal and you do not need much else. I usually keep things very simple.
The soup goes well with crackers, french bread or a simple salad. I have made these Easy Homemade Dinner Rolls and they were delicious.
I love to have something to dip into the soup and get every last bit of all that creamy and delicious broth.
Tip for Tuscan sausage potato soup:
This recipe like many calls for diced onions. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the onions.
If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.
I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.
This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
Try spicy sausage soup!
Sometimes for a little extra heat, I will use spicy ground sausage in the recipe. It makes the soup a little more spicy and we all love it.
It is perfect to kick things up a notch but not so spicy that the kiddos can’t enjoy it.
We also love sausage potato spinach soup.
Add some spinach to this soup for a pop of color and extra veggies. It is delicious with the potatoes and sausage.
If you have children that are resistant to spinach, try to see if they will try it this way. It blends with the creamy broth for a great meal!
