I like any kind of soup including potatoes among the ingredients but I also have a favorite recipe, namely the Hungarian recipe for smoked sausages and potato soup.

➡️ This tasty potato soup recipe is one of the foods that delighted my childhood. My maternal grandfather was a butcher, and after cutting the pork at St. Ignatius in December, he prepared some extra-good smoked sausages. Grandma then used them to make a variety of dishes, including soup.

➡️ You can’t imagine how good my grandmother’s soup was at noon when I entered the house after a few hours of playing in the cold and snow! A steaming plate of soup was waiting for me, which I quickly devoured, then fell asleep to the excellent food and warmth of the house!

➡️ The recipe for potato soup with sausages is straightforward to make and it won’t take you long to prepare it. The ingredients are quite easy to find and the whole family will appreciate the soup you cook.
