You can place this soup inside of a bread bowl if you like. Many stores sell bread bowls so you don’t have to worry about making one for this sausage, potato, and cheese stew. This stew also tastes just as good in a bowl, so you really can enjoy it either way.

This style of soup reheats very well, so if you want to bring this to lunch or even reheat it a night or two during the week you are in luck. Having a bowl of soup that you can easily reheat makes life so much easier. I sometimes cook a batch of this on the weekend just to be able to bring this to work.
