Cheddar Potato and Kielbasa Soup

This is another one of my husbands favorite. It was perfect for a very cool day in Ohio. We served it with french bread.

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 14 1/2 – ounce can chicken broth*
  • 3 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
