You’ve been enjoying the snow where you live, too? We’ve have had a LOT in the Pacific Northwest, but we’re staying cozy and enjoying a bowl of this Sausage Bacon Tomato Soup. Maybe you’ve tried some of my soup recipes, like this popular Seafood Chowder, Slow Cooker White Bean Basil Chicken Soup, and 30-minute Ground Turkey Lasagna Soup.

One thing I want to prioritize myself with this year is to be still, take breaks, and look outside. I mean, we live in the most gorgeous place (and the snow has such a “wow” effect). To silence my thoughts and focus on all the good around me, the many blessings, is a good thing. A practice for me, to be mindful of this several times a day.

Even as I’m cooking … we have tons of windows in our home to look out to take in the beauty.

We love a good tomato soup (and with grilled cheese? come on!), so this recipe takes it up a notch. It’s all made in one pot, and has a Portugese flair to the recipe.

You can also serve tomato soup and grilled cheese on a tray.

Here are some tips to making the cooking process easier:

  • Having precooked sausage is a life saver when you don’t have tons of time.
  • This recipe calls for Portuguese sausage, but you can also use apple and chicken sausage, or spicy Italian, as a delicious substitute.
  • You can add extra veggies like carrots and celery, as well as beans, to add more protein and fiber.
  • Crush a few pieces of potato and mix back into the pot.

Like any stew, the longer it sits, the better it tastes, so this is a great recipe to eat throughout the week—and the best part is that it is made in one pot!

There are little moments, little pockets of time, that speak to my soul. It’s here where I get my thoughts off of myself, and I pray for others and situations around me. And I also ask to be changed from the inside out.

What are you focusing on this New Year? I believe 2022 is going to be a great year, if we are looking up!

  • 8 slices thick cut bacon, roughly chopped
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
  • 2 ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 ½ tsp black pepper
  • 3 links, about 18 oz Portugese sausage, sweet or spicy, cut into 1/2’’ diagonal pieces
  • 4-5 Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled, diced 3/4’’ thick
  • 1 Tbsp dried oregano
  • 2 fresh bay leaves, 3 dried
  • 1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 c vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 bunch Tuscan kale, stems removed, washed, cut into 2’’ pieces
  • c dill, roughly chopped, plus more to garnish
  • Salt to taste

To serve:

  • Lime wedges
  • Sour cream
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Crunchy bread


  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, add the bacon over medium-low heat. Once the fat has rendered, 5-7 minutes, increase heat to medium and add the paprika, cumin, cinnamon, and pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes to bloom the spices, then reduce heat to medium-low and add the onions and garlic.
  • Cook until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add the sausage, potatoes, and a pinch of salt, cooking 3-4 minutes. Finally, add the oregano, bay leaf, tomatoes, and broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 35-45 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
  • Fifteen minutes before serving, stir in the kale to wilt. Taste or salt, and, using the back of a fork, crush a few pieces of potato and mix back into the pot to thicken it. Serve warm with dill, Parmesan, lime, sour cream, and crunchy bread.
