Recipe by Teresa Fadley

This soup is always a big hit at family gatherings. It was my favorite at a local restaurant. I don't have their recipe but this is my own concoction that comes very close. Excellent with hot homemade rolls on a beautiful fall day.

Wow, this is a great soup! We had a hambone from a potluck at work, and this made a great broth and great soup. I thought the cabbage would have been too much since it says a whole head, but it's so great! We used a little Louisiana hot sauce with it. Great on a cold night!
