Eintopt means "one pot" and this is a variation of the many kinds made in Germany. I generally make just half this amount. I use turkey smoked sausage and, as frozen French-cut green beans are hard to find here, I use canned beans. I also add a bit of fines herbes.

This is a great soup. made as posted for 4 servings but skipped the Maggi Sauce (never used it and checked on line - The sodium count is 1480 gr per tablespoon and lots of chemical ingredients - too scary for me personally. Another reviewer mentioned a smoky taste so I added a bit of snoked paprika. This had a full "earthy" taste which I loved. Thanks for posting Julie. Made for I Recommend Tag.

This soup is really, really good. I loved it! I made this in the crockpot because of time restraints and it came out perfect! I cooked it on high for about 4 hours. I only had sausage pattys so I fried and crumbled them up and dumped everything in my crockpot. I have no idea what maggi seasoning is, so I just used, salt, pepper, basil and parsley. Safe, I know... but yummy! Made for ZWT6.

Very nice soup. This is just how DH likes soup - soupy. I added the carrot, onions, celery, sausage, and potato in one step, then cooked until the potatoes were tender. Then I seasoned it. I left out the green beans because of personal preference. I found it funny (or is the joke on me?) that some of the other reviewers seemed to assume Maggi seasoning is chicken bouillon. I believer Maggi does make a bouillon, but Maggi seasoning is a flavor enhancer similar to Kitchen Bouquet. Anyway, it really "made" the soup for me, since it lent it an unusual, smoky, delicious difference. Made for ZWT #6 - ZINGO.
