This soup will chase away the chill of any blustery day. Rich, creamy and SO DELICIOUS.

I prefer to use turkey sausage, especially now that you can get it in Italian sausage. The flavor is fantastic.

Start by browning the sausage. Use cooking spray if you are using turkey. If using pork sausage, drain well when cooking is completed. Remove sausage from pan and set aside.

Add olive oil and butter to pan and saute diced veggies.

Cook and stir 4-5 minutes.

Melt 1/4 cup of butter in veggies and then stir in flour. Cook and stir a couple of minutes and stir in chicken broth.

Stir and cook until mixture bubbles and thickens.

Add potatoes, simmer for 8-10 minutes.

Stir in half n half, sausage, Worcestershire sauce and hot pepper flakes if you want. Salt and pepper to taste.
