Well Mr Intrepid, Ill share my world famous Advantage eye ball it Potato and Sausage Soup.
I dont measure usually, so thats where the eyeball it comes in .
Cut up a bunch of hog jowl in to small cubes. ( I usually use the whole package
put the jowl in the pot and fry it until you have some good grease and add in a whole yellow onion and a whole red onion minced/diced very small.
Mince about 4 Shallots and put in.
Put in 2 big spoons of butter
Put in flour ( about a 1/2 cup) and whisk it with a fork until smooth and almost a golden brown.
Add the whole container of heavy whipping creme slowly and whisk it in so the flour and onions are smoothly in it.
Add in about 2 TSP of minced garlic
Add in about 3 stalks of cut celery
Add in about 1/3 cup of parsely
2 tbsp or so of sour cream
Add in about 4 or 5 tbsp of Stubbs liquid smoke ( mesquite) ( I just add it till it tastes good!)
Cut up as many potatoes as you want to put into it
Cover the potatoes with water and add salt/ pepper to taste.
Add in some cut up smoked sausage/polish sausage, This last batch I used deer sausage!
Boil it till the potatoes are done. Might have to whisk in some flour if it gets too runny depending on how many potatoes you added. I serve it with
some shredded cheddar on top and chopped greeen onions or when I have them, chives.
I serve this in the winter mainly.. its a heavy warming soup for those cold winter nights when youre playing beached whale on the couch.
