FANTASTIC SOUP! I had some sauteed crimini mushrooms so I put some in the soup and used more for topping along with cheese, parsley and bacon. A new fav!

I personally did not care for this soup. The idea is wonderful and my husband LOVED it but my tastebuds did not care for the sausage or the dill. It’s definately a fun idea though!

I used Jalapeno and jack sausage for this recipe, and sauteed my veggies in bacon grease. It got great reviews from my family, and I will be making this again!

Very tasty! I felt like this was of restaurant caliber. My husband accidentally bought beef broth instead of chicken, and we used fully cooked chicken and apple sausage, but it came out great! The consistency was perfect, not too thick nor thin. It was also very fast and easy to make!

Good stuff that the whole family loved! I served it in homemade bread bowls and used Sage ground sausage but next time I think i’ll try a smoked sausage or a spicy chicken sausage. Very good.
