Delicious on a cool night here in Canada. I didn't like the idea of cooking the bread so long, so I added it in the last five minutes of cooking time. I only added pepper and omitted the red pepper flakes. Don't care for them. Made for Adopt A Tag II 2008 :)

*Made for PAC Spring 2008* This was our first experience with bread soup -- made a SUPER soup supper ! I followed the recipe as closely as possible, we ultimately ended with soup the consistency of applesauce. The bread I used was a few slices of left-over beer bread (maybe more dense than I should have?), plus a slice of ciabatta bread - all dried a tad in the toaster oven. I added NO S&P seasoning, and could not believe that the 15 flakes of red pepper added so much flavor ! The sausage I added was cryopacked skinless Polish Kielbasa - turkey/pork. I also added about 1/2 can of water to the canned broths. The taste was wonderful ! Spicy without being obnoxious, and extremely full flavored -- and MOST filling. I am glad to have had this experience, - would have to VERY carefully chose guests for whom to prepare this- wish I had known when we had the "Gourmet Group" ! This is what is great about Zaar -- exposes us to taste sensations we may have never otherwise tried. Thanks, Maito, I hope we did were able to successfully demonstrate your your lovely recipe.

This soup was very good and easy to make. We used left over fresh polish sausage that we smoked. It had a nice blend of flavors. Thanks for the post!

I'm sorry but we really did not care for this. I think it was the bread. It was sorta mushy and just had a weird texture that no one really liked. The flavor of the soup is great and I would make the soup on it's own. I loved the flavor of the basil with the tomatoes. We used a Polska Keilbasa for the sausage. This is a great soup for those days when you want to have something simmering away. I will make this again, but serve the bread on the side. Made and Reviewed for Please Review My Recipe Tag - Thanks! :)

This was a very interesting soup. I also got many comments on how the texture was a bit off. It smelled great and tasted good, but the soggy bread was kind of an odd texture.

The aroma of this cooking is amazing. It tastes rich and flavourful. I was not crazy about the texture of the 'melted' bread. I had never made bread soup before so I wasn't sure what to expect but because I love to dip bread into soup I thought it would be similar. I may try it again and not simmer it for so long with the bread. I am going to try running the leftovers through the blender as I really enjoyed the flavour a lot. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
