I always choose to use ham over sausage since I buy a whole half hog and have plenty of ham. I just take a ham slice and chop it into pieces and put it in.
I also choose to, rather than use bouillon, to use broth instead.
This time instead of chopping the carrots and celery I just used the food processor and grated them. Husband doesn't like big chunks of veggies so I figure shredded/chopped - doesn't really matter.
I never add potatoes to mine but this time I did add half a medium size zucchini so I hope that turns out. I can't see why it won't. If anything it might make it thicker.
I always start with adding 7 cups of water and then add more as needed (my broth is concentrated so I use water to dilute).
I know I make quite a few changes but, overall, this recipe is great and you can tweak it however you like for your tastes. You even could easily make it vegan or vegetarian by using vegetable broth instead of chicken.
I like serving mine with cornbread or garlic toast. It is a wonderful dinner and leftovers on a chilly fall or winter day!
