Sandi’s Zuppa Toscona

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 2 cups homemade turkey broth
  • 1 lb Hot Pork sausage
  • ¾ – 1 lb bacon
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • ½-3/4 cup fresh parsley
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 4- 5 cups water
  • 5 tablespoons Onion powder
  • 5 tablespoons Garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Sage
  • ¼-1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • Salt

Brown sausage in oven at 300 degrees for 30 minutes. Cook bacon in oven at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Peel potatoes, cut in half lengthwise and slice. Place all ingredients EXCEPT sausage, bacon, half and half, and parsley, in a sauce pan. Cook on Med-high until potatoes are done. Add sausage and bacon, simmer 15-20 minutes, add half and half and parsley stir and bring back up to temperature, reduce to low for up to ½ hour.

I have made up this cheat sheet to print out and keep on hand while you are making the soup. It is a little easier than reading the recipe while you work.
