About this recipe: This soup is easy to make and very hearty. Sauteed sausagemeat is simmered with cheese in a creamy soup base. Enjoy with fresh bread, if desired.
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!! - 13 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 07 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
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. - 08 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
