Reviews forPotato Soup with Sausage
"This recipe came out so good. I need to put the leftovers in the refrigerat right now so I don't eat the whole pot. It is more of a stew but I couldn't be more pleased with the taste."
"Very easy to make."
"Loved by everyone, including a 7 mo old bUsed non"
"This is one of my family's favorites. Ham works fine too. Sometimes I use fresh rosemary instead of thyme. And yes it does turn out pretty thick."
"This soup was sooo good. I didn't have any green beans, so I used about a cup of frozen peas-and-carrots. I also had about a half-dozen frozen shrimp that I tossed in with the beans. Added a sprinkle of garlic and hot-pepper-sauce. Wow, excellent."
"Yummy-Yummy... but mine came out more like a stew (thick) than a soup. Not sure what I did wrong but still delicious. Thanks"
"I have been making this soup for years. It's perfect for a winter meal. My husband requests this all the time."
"This is pretty good soup. My husband and I both like it and I will make it again."
"What a great recipe! I did change it a bit, replacing the sausage with ham and then used butter instead of the sausage drippings to cook the celery and onions. I also thought a little black pepper gave it a bit of zip. I've printed out a second copy to send to my mom...good stuff."
