Step 7: Add Everything Else and Tweak

The soup is just about done!  Once the potatoes are nice and tender, add the sausage to the pot.  Then, heat the mixture just until the sausage has been reheated, then, turn the heat down to low and add the heavy cream (1 cup).  Mix the soup together until everything is well blended.

Then, give the soup a little taste.  You might be perfectly happy with the taste, in which case you are done.  But, you might also find that you want the soup to have a bit more salt, or a little more spiciness.  One of the best parts about making soup is experimenting with it.  Feel free to add any other ingredients you want.  Many people, and also the restaurant, Olive Garden, add bacon to this soup.  I tend not to in an effort to keep the soup just a bit more healthful, but bacon can add a nice new dimension to the flavor. 
A word of caution. Never keep part of an onion they collect more germs than any other food. They are what make you sick in warm potato salad. Google it.
