Reviews forAndouille Sausage Soup
"My local butcher makes a FANTASTIC andouille and this soup was definitely a winner. I needed to cook it for much longer to make the sausage tender, simmer for at least an hour. Then add potatoes and onion mixture and cook for 20-30 more minutes. Add tomatoes during last 10-15 of cooking so they don't disintegrate. I also only used 1 onion and NO liquid smoke. Making these adjustments made it perfect - adding it to our regular rotation. Thanks!"
