Do you cook the sausage before adding?
Hi Susan. You use pre-cooked smoked sausage so no need to pre-cook it. You certainly can brown it up a bit for a few minutes for added flavor if you have time. Thanks! -Amy
My mother made a variant of this. No cream was incorporated into the soup before serving, and this is more a winter soup than a summer soup, so canned tomatoes or tomato juice/puree were used (NOT sauce). Yes, kolbasz, not kielbasa. Yes, paprika. OK to sub water for broth for a thinner but still tasty soup. Best served with a dollop of butter on top, and rye bread on the side, or at least rye croutons. Oh, and some cut the sausage into rounds and saute them before adding them to the soup. Sour cream at table is optional. Thinking of making it today for my wife, who’s under the weather at the moment.
By adding Hungarian sausage instead of kielbasa and add paprika will really make this a Hungarian soup.
