Don’t you just love this time of year? The air is crisp, the nights are cool, and the children breathe in white puffs. I adore the fall!
And if you ask me, there is nothing better on a cool fall evening than a big, hearty bowl of steaming soup.
This potato soup is an often requested recipe in our family and it feeds all 10 of us for well under $10. My family loves it because it is creamy and filling. I love it because it fits our large family budget!
You will need:
- 1 lb. spicy breakfast sausage ($2.50)
- 10 medium Russet potatoes ($1.30)
- 1 onion, diced ($.30)
- 1 can cream of chicken soup ($.89)
- 1 can cream corn ($.59)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar ($.50)
Total = $6.08 (Remember this is for a family of 10!)
- Peel and cube potatoes. Cover with water in large stock pot and put on to boil.
