I’m excited to announce that we’ll feature guest bloggers right here from Tastefully Simple Headquarters from time to time. This week, please give a warm welcome to Lisa Ek, one of the creative geniuses on our Product Development Team. She plays a pivotal role in developing new products and recipes, she’s absolutely brilliant, and quite frankly – she’s a hoot. Enjoy!
It’s October and this young fraulein has visions of Oktoberfest dancing in her head. (Of course, I’m wearing my lederhosen during this dream.)
Perfectly Potato Cheddar Soup Mix is the ideal base for a wide variety of yummy autumn soups, so this week, we’re spotlighting a recipe called “Perfectly Potato Cheddar Beer Sausage Soup” submitted by Tastefully Simple consultant Rhea Perry. I think it sounds like exactly what you need for creating your own Oktoberfest feast.
Sausage and beer … it just doesn’t get any better. Unless you’re making Wiener schnitzel, which has nothing to do with this recipe. But it’s fun to say.

Perfectly Potato Cheddar Beer Sausage Soup
- Yield: 6 Servings
Hi all! I’m excited to announce that we’ll feature guest bloggers right here from Tastefully Simple Headquarters from time …
- Perfectly Potato Cheddar Soup Mix
- 4 cups water
- 24 oz. beer
- 2 tsp. Bacon Bacon™
- 2 tsp. ground mustard
- 1 tsp. mustard seed
- 5 medium potatoes thickly sliced with skin on
- 1 lb. ground sausage
- 1 tsp. Garlic Garlic™
- 1 cup extra sharp Cheddar cheese shredded
- In a large stockpot, whisk Perfectly Potato Cheddar Soup Mix into water and beer. Add next three ingredients; simmer over low-medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 30 minutes. In a separate pot, boil sliced potatoes until tender; drain and stir into soup mixture. Meanwhile, brown sausage with Garlic Garlic™ until fully cooked; drain and add to soup. Remove stockpot from heat. Gradually fold in shredded cheese until completely melted. Serve warm. (Note: If the soup is too hot or reheated at a high temperature, the cheese will separate from the beer broth.) Makes 6 servings.
