Steps To Make Potato Kielbasa Soup
The steps are also simple to follow. It won’t take you long at all to whip up this hearty soup!
Step 1: Start by cooking some sliced kielbasa in a skillet. Be mindful of this; you don’t want to overcook it, but it is nicer when the sausage bits are somewhat crispy. Saute the sausage for 5-6 minutes, but if you want it crispier, adjust the time accordingly.
Step 2: Take the sausage out of the Dutch oven after it’s done cooking. Using a slotted spoon, remove the sausage from the pan and place it on a paper towel-lined plate to remove excess grease. Then, saute the veggies in the same pan.
Step 3: The chicken stock and potatoes will take the longest to simmer. To cook the potatoes, bring the stock to a boil and then turn the heat down to a simmer.
Step 4: Once the potatoes have reached the desired tenderness, stir in the cooked sausage along with the milk, cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. When the soup is heated and bubbling and the cheese has melted, it’s ready to be served.
Step 5: Mix in some parsley for more color and taste, and serve with crusty bread on the side.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is the cheese not melting in the soup?
Instead of buying pre-shredded cheese, try using a box grater and a whole block. There’s a coating on the shredded cheese sold in grocery shops, and for whatever reason, it makes the cheese stick together.
While adding the cheese to the soup, stir it regularly.
Be careful to not dump in all the cheese at once. As soon as it begins to clump, turn the heat up or down until the cheese melts, and then add more.
