We used smoked sausage similar looking to Keilbasa... I think that's not what the recipe calls for, but the kids liked it. I might try it with Italian sausage later. Also, I didn't have chicken soup base, so I just added the amounts of water and chicken base that it called for and did half chicken broth and half water. I think it gave it much more flavor. We didn't add any salt until the very end (and added a little bit of the bacon grease). I cooked the bacon on a cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil in the oven... it gets crispier that way... and cooked the onions (used red onions) with a bit of olive oil on the stove with the garlic, just a low simmer to tender them b/4 adding them to the soup. We had also made homemade artisan bread and had it to dip in the broth, it went together fabulously!! Wonderful meal!
