  • 4 large potatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper

  • 4 tbsp flour
  • 6 cups chicken broth

  • 2 cups shredded old white cheddar cheese


  1. If you are using sausages, remove the casings.
  2. In a large soup pot over medium heat add the ground Italian sausage and cook until lightly browned.

  3. When the sausage has cooked, use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to a bowl and set aside.

  4. In the same pot, keep the drippings and add the onions, garlic, carrots, celery and potatoes. If there are not enough drippings, add 2 tbsp of vegetable or olive oil.

  5. Sauté until the onions are soft but not browned.

  6. Add the seasonings: salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, dry mustard and paprika. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes.
  7. Add the 4 tbsp of flour, stir and cook for about 2 minutes.
  8. Add the chicken broth, bay leaf, hot sauce and cooked Italian sausage.
  9. Simmer over a low boil on low-medium heat until the soup thickens and the potatoes are cooked (they should be fork tender), about 20 minutes.
  10. Stir in the cream and simmer for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove the bay leaf.
  12. Add the shredded cheese, stir until the cheese is melted. 
  13. Serve and enjoy!
