Loved this recipe as a base but changed it up a little bit. I used 1 lb of Jimmy Dean sausage, 2 boxes of veggie stock, 1 24 oz. bag of frozen hashbrowns, 1 bag of frozen spinach. Used 1 cup of water and followed the base recipe for everything else. It was yummy! I also spiced it up a little bit with some hellfire. Really tasty! Reminded me of Olive Garden's Zuppa toscana soup that I love so much! Thank you for posting!!

I found this recipe in an old Southern Living Cookbook. I also used a pound of sausage, and instead of hash browns I cut up Idaho potatoes. For the milk, I substituted evaporated milk and couldn't tell the difference. I thought it needed more when it was done, and I added cut up celery, carrots, parsley, red pepper, pepper, and by mistake parmesan cheese (just the shaker kind). I found the parmesan to make quite a difference that turned a good recipe into a great one. Who would have thought? Thanks for posting this recipe!

This was very easy to make. If you are short on time this recipe is for you. I used 1 pound of sausage and I'm glad I did. That way I was not asked where's the meat by certain family members. I might try using skim milk next time to cut back on some calories. I will be making this again. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
