Broccoli & Cheese soup

I love one pot meals.  Especially since we have limited space.  So when it feels like a soup kind of day, I don't hesitate.  Broccoli & Cheese is an awesome recipe because itn
can be so versatile.  I am not impressed with our local options for ham, and bacon gets mushy in soup....  so I tried something new, ground sausage.  It's all pork, right?

1# cooked and drained ground sausage ( or chopped ham or cooked bacon)
4 or 5 peeled and cut potatoes
8 cups of broth (canned, boxed, homemade, bouillion all work
Chopped onion, garlic, celery, mushrooms (I don't measure)
Chopped carrots, just a few is fine.  I add any leftover veggies I have as well

Boil and simmer until the potatoes are almost done.

Add 2 c. Fresh or frozen
Simmer until veggies are all cooked

Add cheese.  I use a mix of whatever I have.  About 2 c total.

If you like it thicker you can add cream of mush soup, a mix of flour and water like you would gravy, some instant potatoes or some leftover mashed potatoes.

I opt for mashed potatoes since I am Gluten free

And enjoy!!!!
