Spicy (Deer) Sausage Potato Soup

Tis the season for soups!

I have at least two soups on the dinner menu this week! I absolutely love this time of year! Not only are soups some of my favorites to eat but they are so easy to make! And if you’ve read any of my other recipes you’ll start to see a trend….SUPER SIMPLE, QUICK & EASY!

Something else you might notice is I use mainly game meat. However, you can use any sort of meat and it’ll turn out fine. I’ve just become very fond of deer and elk! I start bugging my husband to start harvesting if we run low! Funny to think back to when I hated hunting season! So if you want to see how I make this delicious soup read on!


  • 1 pound spicy deer sausage
  • 6 Medium Potatoes peeled and cubed
  • 1/4 Cup sliced carrots
  • 1/2 Onion diced
  • 1 celery rib chopped
  • 1 & 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 pepper (My husband and I add more to our soup since boys don’t like a lot)
  • 1 & 1/2 Cups milk
  • 2 Cups shredded cheese
