Savory Butternut Squash and Sausage Soup

Unlike other squash soups made with apples and other sweet ingredients, this one is savory, full of wonderful fall flavor and hearty enough to keep your family full and happy! This recipe is high in vitamin A and C, and loaded with fiber too!


  • 1 lb. bulk sausage, or bratwursts with skins removed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium-sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, or mix with half-and-half or cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg


Brown sausage and onion in skillet, drain and set aside.

While sausage is cooking, place cubed squash in an extra-large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and then simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain about half the water, leaving 2-3 cups of liquid in the pot with the squash. You can save the drained liquid and use as a vegetable broth for another recipe later.

Using a potato masher, or a hand-puree device, lightly mash the squash cubes. Do not completely puree. Add in butter, milk, spices, and sausage/onions. Bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often so it doesn't stick.
