ground Italian sausage
uncooked wild rice
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of potato soup
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of chicken soup
processed cheese, cubed
Good and easy soup but I made a few changes. First, I used 1 lb of cubed cooked ham, I used 1 14.5oz can pre-cooked wild rice (undrained) and instead of using 1 can of cream of chicken, I used 2 can cream of potatoe. This allowed my to skip step 1 in the recipe and just mix everything in the pot and heat through, melting the cheese when warmed. Although I wil try this with the other meat recommendations, this turned out great for us!!
I thought this soup was a little too thick. Also, I followed the advice of some other reviews and only used half the Velveeta, but I thought the cheese flavor was still too strong. My husband complained because he couldn't even taste the sausage. I don't think we'll make this one again.
Wow, this is tasty, and helped me use up some food I needed to use up! I used cut up kielbasa instead of the italian sausage. I also added some fresh mushrooms to saute with the onions and kielbasa. I used all regular milk, no evaporated, since most reviewers claimed this soup to be quite thick. It is quite "chunky", too, so I added an extra can of soup and extra milk.
Delicious and easy! I made it without the cheese though, because it was so good already, and I wanted to eliminate some of the fat.
This was a great winter soup! I used a half a pound of bacon instead of sausage and it was wonderful. I made this for my in-laws when they came in to town unexpectedly. Very easy to throw together and it tastes like you have slaved over a hot stove all day!
Very good soup. Does get very thick the next day, I had to add more milk to thin it out, but a wonderful taste. I used Jimmy Dean sausage.
I used the hambuger variation. As a soup it was ok, as leftovers I added more milk and served it over garlic cheese biscuits, that was better.
We had this last night for dinner and it was yummy! I changed things a little bit to make it more healthy. I substituted the sausage for ground turkey, used reduced calorie soups, and 2% evaporated milk. Served it with garlic bread and it was delicious!! Can't wait to have some of the left overs today for lunch. ENJOY! Comes to about 188 per serving (minus the bread) based on the 12 serving size recipe.
