We really liked this soup. I didn't have regular sausage so I used Adielles sausage (I sliced very thin). I also used applewood bacon salt in place of regular salt, but everything else was the same (I used Kale). We were very pleasantly surprised. Even my husband liked it (and he NEVER likes anything new)! Read More

I did not have kale so I used collard greens. I would like to try it with potato inside of an instant mix. The soup did not look smooth. Very good flavor. Would make it again. Read More

We actually really enjoyed this recipe. We added twice as much of the sausage as the recipe called for and 4 cups of chard. It turned out to be quite the comforting dish! It's even really good as leftovers because it thickens a little more. Read More

I didn t add flour but used a blender to thicken a portion. I will likely use turkey bacon from here on out because I just don t want the grease. Otherwise I followed the recipe and took it to a fellowship dinner. Everyone loved it! Read More
