The Best Potato-Sausage-Cabbage Soup

The Best Potato-Sausage-Cabbage Soup created by lazyme

My mom has cooked this as long as I can remember- I don't know where the recipe started. She sent me to college with the recipe and after 15 years I've not been able to top it. Recipe requests come after every serving. It is even better the second day, but it normally doesn't last that long in our house! A perfect comfort food!

ingredients

directions

  • Brown the sausage in a large skillet.
  • Remove the sausage with a slotted spoon and leave drippings and browned bits in the pan.
  • Chop celery, cabbage and onion. Cook in the grease from the sausage until soft (10-15 minutes).
  • Transfer the cooked sausage and cabbage mixture to a large soup kettle.
  • Add the water, chicken bouillon and hash browns and cook over medium heat for 30 minutes.
  • Mix the milk, sour cream and flour in a small bowl until smooth.
  • Add the milk mixture to the soup and simmer 10 more minutes.
  • **My Mom's original recipe called for 5 cups of water and that never seemed to be enough when I made it. If you stick between 5-7 cups you can make the soup as thick or thin as you would like. Well, maybe not thin! Making this soup thin and brothy would be a crime!

    Can I tell you how much my husband and I love this recipe? Since I have a hard time following most recipes to the letter (lol), I have tweaked the original with: adding a small amount of whole kernel corn, frozen hash browns, and using the hottest roll sausage I can find. Oh, I've done this with leek and onion with rave reviews!

    Used beef bouillon and it gave the stew a nice meaty flavor. We added some lemon and pepper at the table. I think if you added the celery in the last 10 minutes you could give the soup a little "tooth"; topping it with something like parsley would also give it some differential in texture too.

    Yum! We really enjoyed this soup. I halved the recipe for 2 of us and used Jimmy Dean hot sausage, homemade hash browns out of the freezer, and lots of pepper. I started out with 3 cups of water and added a little more - maybe 1/2 cup during the simmering. It turned out to be a nice thick soup - the way I like it. I wasn't sure if my grandson would like it because of the cabbage, but I no longer get to try it on day 2. He scarfed it all down. lol. Thanks Dantana for a nice keeper on a sunny but chilly day. It really hit the spot. Made for PRMR tag.
