Servings 8
Author Amy


  • 5 - 6 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • Broth or stock
  • 1 lb ground pork sausage (country, maple, sage, or hot)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Rinse sweet potatoes but do not peel.
  2. Coarsely chop the sweet potatoes and onion. Place in a large soup pot or crock pot.
  3. Cover with broth or stock (to about an inch above the vegetables).
  4. If cooking in a crock pot, cook on high for 5 hours or low for 8 hours. If simmering in a soup pot, the time is usually reduced considerably and the potatoes should be cooked until they are soft.
  5. While the potatoes and onion are cooking, cook the sausage in a skillet and drain fat.
  6. Puree the sweet potatoes and onions with a stick blender.
  7. Add the cooked sausage, salt, and pepper.
  8. Just before serving, add the cream and reheat for about 5 minutes.
