How to Serve Tuscan Bean Soup?

In Romania, thicker soups (such as our famous beef soup) are usually served with spicy pickled peppers, which are an absolute requirement. Pork and bean soups or stews, on the other hand, are usually served with raw onions and salt.

“Raw onions and salt, Jo?” I know what you’re thinking. Please don’t dismiss it until you’ve given it a shot! You quarter an onion and serve it on a platter with salt; while eating the bean soup, you take a piece of onion, dip it in salt, and voilà! You may find that unusual, yet this is a widespread occurrence in Romania. This is where red onions come in handy.

How to Make Sausage Potato Soup?

Use hot or mild Italian sausage to brown the sausage (whichever you prefer). Drain the fat by placing the sausage on a paper towel-lined dish. Next, sauté the onions, celery, and carrots (don’t rush them; they won’t grow much more tender during the cooking process). To ensure that all three vegetables cook quickly and smoothly, dice them into small, even pieces. Celery, carrots, and onion are nice and tender. Cut the baby gold potatoes into dice. I always choose Yukon gold or baby gold potatoes for this soup; they are the tastiest! Cut the potatoes into small, bite-sized pieces in a consistent manner.

Add potatoes and the seasonings. Add chicken stock or broth (we like chicken stock best). Prepare a roux, then cream the mixture in a separate pot while the soup is cooking, and then grate some Cheddar cheese. Pour the cream mixture into the soup, followed by the Cheddar. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed after adding the sour cream. To avoid a waxy Sausage Potato Soup, use freshly grated Cheddar (pre-grated cheese has a cellulose coating to keep it from clumping together).

It includes all of the components of traditional Italian cuisine and the rustic vibe that comes from layering flavors. Fresh fruits and vegetables, bacon, sausage, and cream.

How to Make Sausage and Veggie Hash?

Start by scrubbing and thoroughly washing the potatoes. Dry them, and then, using a fork, poke holes throughout the potatoes. Place in the microwave for 5 minutes, flip them over, and microwave for another 3-5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool. Meanwhile, prep the sausage and veggies. Coin the sausage. Chop the peppers and onion (for smaller veggie bites) (Dice for smaller veggie bites). Add the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat until sizzling in a vast dutch oven skillet. Add in the coined sausage and cook for 4-5 minutes until lightly browned. Remove to a plate.

Continue to cook on medium-high heat while adding in the butter. Stir the butter into the vegetables, including the peppers and onions chopped. While those are getting ready to cook, dice the potatoes (remove skins if desired, I like to leave them on). Cook, occasionally stirring, for 4-7 minutes, or until the vegetables are crisp-tender and the potatoes have a nice crisp exterior, depending on how big your potatoes are. Garlic and seasonings (dried parsley, Italian seasoning, paprika, salt + pepper to taste) should be added. Create four “wells” in the hash and crack the eggs into each well. (Add eggs before the vegetables are finished cooking so that they don’t become too browned.) Fry until the whites are set, and the eggs are cooked to your liking, then remove from the pan and serve immediately).

Conclusion

When making sausage, the best way to preserve it is to keep it cold. It would help if you started by chilling the ingredients, including the meat and fat. Freezing these ingredients will help them cut easier than at room temperature. The meat should be as close to 32 degrees Fahrenheit as possible and should be numb in your hands. Avoid refreezing it because it will lose its quality. Once the meat thaws, you can make sausages!

The flavors of this dish are so delicious and savory that it’ll make you want to order a second batch!
