Sweet Corn, Kielbasa, and Potato Soup
“My Mom made a version of this soup all the time growing up and it’s SO Midwestern it hurts (so good.) Chopped kielbasa and bacon are browned in a big soup pot then fresh vegetables including carrots, celery, shallots, and garlic are sauteed in the drippings. Creamy yukon gold potatoes and snappy sweet corn simmer in a slightly thickened broth before being ladled into bowls and topped with tons of spicy, fresh green onions.
This soup is hearty, comforting, and absolutely perfect for this gloomy time of year. PLUS (full circle moment here,) it’s perfect for busy families because it reheats like a dream. Make a big pot of soup on Sunday night then reheat at any point during the week for a nearly instant supper. Serve with salad and you’re set!”
Yummy and soul-warming comfort food, that’s just what we need this time of year, isn’t it? And this soup delivers! It’s loaded with bacon, kielbasa, carrots, corn, celery, shallots, garlic, and potatoes all swimming in a delicious and creamy chicken-y broth. Serve this with some bread and maybe an apple crisp for dessert and you’re going to have the happiest belly around.
