Sausage Potato Soup


This is my version of an Olive Garden favorite.  I use sage flavored sausage rather than Italian sausage.  I prefer the flavor, but feel free to experiment with you own.

Sausage Potato Soup

1 pound pork sausage, sage flavored

1 medium onion, diced

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

salt to taste

2 cups chicken broth

1 cup condensed milk

5 medium potatoes, diced

1 cup chard, roughly chopped

Combine potatoes and chicken broth in a large pot, bring to a boil and reduce to simmer.  Brown sausage with onion, garlic, pepper and salt until no longer pink.  Drain well and add to broth and potatoes.  Add milk and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and cook until potatoes are tender.  In last 15 minutes of cooking, add chopped chard.
