      Great, different potato soup!! I was lucky to have wonderful smoked pork hocks,that we bought in LaPlace,La. I cooked them the day before making the soup, with a hunk of onion, celery, carrot and bay leaf until tender. Removed the hocks, strained the broth and refrigerated until next day. This way I could skim off the fat layer before using the broth and proceeding with the recipe. We skipped the sour cream and cheese. This will be a new favorite at our house.

      This soup is really good! I had to use all sausage as my grocer didn't have any ham hocks but hopefully I will be able to get one next time I make this. I used half sweet Hungarian paprika and half smoked paprika and cooked the soup for 8 hours on low in my crock pot. It came out perfect. I have a lot left over so we will be enjoying this for our lunches this week.

      Tagged for Paprika, Sept 08 Herb/Spice of the Month in the Gardening Forum ~ Delicious! I made a half recipe, with one full pound smoked sausage, but without a ham hock ~ I skipped making the roux and didn't cook but about 40 minutes because I wanted the potatoes just tender, but still chunky!
