Warm, hearty, and comforting Smoked Sausage and Pork Soup…lightened up! (But you wouldn’t even know it!)
I’m a bit of a slacker, I just went Christmas shopping for the first time yesterday..do you start early or are you a last minute shopper? Usually I try to get an idea of what I wanted to get everyone so I know what to look for, but this year Im pretty much just seeing and buying..not as smart, but my time is limited.
The hardest part of not knowing what I’m going out there for, is I always find things for ME! And it’s Christmas, so I buy them, or in the case all day yesterday, my mom bought them for me..Christmas shopping at its finest folks! Id much rather pick my presents anyways 😉 (Sometimes)
This time of year, if I’m not eating cookies, I’m generally eating hearty, comforting dinners or lots of soup. Both are perfect in my book! I have been wanting to try this soup since last Fall and just never found the time last year. This year however, I finally made it and it was even better than expected.
It made my house smell sooooo good, and it tasted even better. Smoked paprika is one of my favorite spices, and paired with the smoked sausage and pork..it was absolute perfection. I used turkey bacon and turkey sausage to reallly lighten this up, but you could use full-fat bacon and sausage and it would still be pretty healthy and taste just as incredible!
