Tis the season for making soups. I love to make big batches of them in the crockpot. Actually I like anything that I can make in the crockpot.
This soup’s original recipe you can find here. I found it to be a bit time consuming as far as prep work but the results were delicious. And knowing that every ingredient I put in there was fresh puts a smile on my face. I also adjusted the amounts in order to make enough for 6 people and have some left over.
The recipe I followed didn’t say anything about what to do with the bacon and so I used it as a topping at the end but the next time I make the soup I will put the bacon in upon putting the cream ingredient in.
I cut up my onion and threw it in while I cooked the sausage so that it would soak up all the yummy flavor from the sausage cooking.
I also added a couple tablespoons each of basil and oregano to the simmering meat and broth.
I added the creamy mixture and kale in about an hour before serving. The recipe calls for only 30 minutes but I felt the kale needed a bit longer to cook.
For toppings with the soup I did the bacon, green onions, and parmesan cheese. 😋
I served with toasted parmesan buttered bread and a fresh salad.
