My granddaughter Vivian is addicted to this soup. The original soup calls for "Bratwurst" or "Knackwurst" but I usually use Polish Kielbasa instead.

Step-by-Step

  1. In a Dutch oven, combine sausage, potatoes, onion, carrots, celery, salt and pepper. Add 2-3 cups water (I sometimes use chicken broth). Bring to a boil and reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.
