January and “soup” go together! On a chilly night nothing satisfies more than a hot bowl of soup and this Sweet Potato and Sausage Soup is a great recipe for a winter warm-up!
This soup was served at a recent get-together! Oh, I had to have the recipe! Where this soup originated, I am not sure. The mixture of the sausage flavors along with the sweet potatoes is truly a winner to my taste palate! I’m sure you’ll love it, too!
