Good, but needed some help. This makes a LOT of soup, so unless you have a lot of people eating it, I suggest cutting back. I made about a half batch. I don't really measure much, either. I used about a half pound of Jimmy Dean hot sausage, 2 strips of bacon, and half an onion.I follow the recipe except I don't use garlic and I don't add the bacon into the soup. I add whatever broth (homemade) I have on hand and add water to make 4 cups of liquid. It's usually about half and half. I also add the red pepper flakes here as well as garlic powder (since I don't keep real garlic on hand) salt and pepper from a grinder, and whatever else smells good from the spice cabinet (usually cayenne pepper, paprika, stuff like that). As for the potatoes, I use 2 large russets. Leave the skin on, cut them in half and half again lengthwise. I cut them about a quarter inch thick, some thinner to help thicken the broth, and add them in. I bring it all to a boil rather than bringing it to a boil THEN adding the potatoes. I let it simmer down for about 10-15 minutes after they're done to thicken it up. I add half a cup of cream and a good amount of kale, rather than spinach. I've used spinach and it turns to mush on me. After it's reheated to almost a boil, I serve it and crumble the bacon over top of it with some parmesan. Sooo yummy. It usually makes 3-4 servings. Since it's only 2 people that eat it in my house, including me, there are leftovers and they reheat well.
