Autumn Bucket List – Autumn Themed Soup

I must say my cooking skills have deteriorated over time. Since I only cook for myself I rarely make a new recipe. So this did not go well…or at a minimum it did not go as planned. Not a disaster but more of a “Oops, not what I expected”. This is my story and I am sticking to it.

I wanted to make an autumn themed meal by making Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes and Kielbasa. As you can see from the picture below it should be a nice meal with potatoes.

Crockpot Cheesy Potatoes and Kielbasa

Prep Time 10minutes minutes

Cook Time 3hours hours

Total Time 3hours hours 10minutes minutes

Servings 8

Calories 

Ingredients

  • 12 oz Kielbasa I used Beef Kielbasa, sliced into bite-size (about ½ inch thick)
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter I used salted butter, but unsalted will work perfectly
  • 3 cans 14.5 oz. diced potatoes, drained (I used Del Monte Fresh Cut Diced New potatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ cup chopped onions I used sweet onions, but you can use white onions or red onions
  • 3 cups fresh shredded cheese I used 1 ½ cups Colby Jack and 1 ½ cups mild Cheddar. You may need more if you want to top each serving with cheese approx ½ cup.
  • 1 can 10.5 oz. cheddar cream soup
  • ½ cup milk (I used 2% milk you could use whole milk but would not recommend heavy cream)

Instructions

  • Spray the slow cooker liner with non-stick spray.
  • Add melted butter. Pour the potatoes and the spices. Mix to coat.
  • Add the sliced Kielbasa, chopped onions, and cheese. Mix well.
  • Add the cheddar cream soup and the milk and mix until all ingredients are well blended together.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low for 5-6 hours until the potatoes are nice and soft.
  • Serve and enjoy with your favorite toppings!


But what I got instead was cheesy potato soup with kielbasa. Lol. It was not bad at all, just not what I was expecting. So this autumn meal became my Autumn Bucket List for soup. Wha-la!

So at least I don’t need to make another soup.
