This is the Au Jus Sandwiches recipe from The Crockin’ Girls. We always have lots of au jus left over so I saute some thick-sliced onions and add them to the broth. In an oven-proof bowl I add a toasted piece of French bread, the onion broth and top with a piece of mozzarella cheese then bake it in the oven until the cheese is golden for French Onion Soup.

My Favorite Soup Recipe

9 Jan

It’s soup month and even though it’s not cold enough for soup in many areas around the world, I still wanted to share my favorite soup recipe with you. Although it’s a little time consuming, it’s worth it. This soup is really hearty and is great with some crusty bread and a salad. Enjoy!

P.S. Feel free to share your favorite soup recipe.

Corn and Wild Rice Soup with Smoked Sausage Bon Appétit | November 1995

Three classic heartland ingredients — corn, smoked sausage and wild rice — combine to give this appealing first-course soup its sweet-spicy flavor and interesting texture.

Yield: Serves 12

ingredients

12 1/2 cups (or more) canned low-salt chicken broth
1 1/4 cups wild rice (about 7 1/2 ounces)

6 1/4 cups frozen corn kernels (about 2 1/2 pounds) thawed
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
10 ounces fully cooked smoked sausage (such as kielbasa), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
3 carrots, peeled, diced
2 medium onions, chopped

1 1/2 cups half and half

Chopped fresh chives or parsley

preparation

Bring 5 cups broth to simmer in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add wild rice and simmer until all liquid evaporates and rice is almost tender, stirring occasionally, about 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, blend 3 3/4 cups corn and 1 1/2 cups chicken broth in processor until thick, almost smooth puree forms. Heat vegetable oil in heavy large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and sauté until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add carrots and onions and stir 3 minutes. Add remaining 6 cups chicken broth and bring soup to simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer soup 15 minutes.

Add cooked wild rice, corn puree and remaining 2 1/2 cups corn kernels to soup. Cook until wild rice is very tender and flavors blend, about 15 minutes longer. Mix in half and half. Thin soup with more chicken broth, if desired. Season soup to taste with salt and pepper. (Soup can be prepared 2 days ahead. Refrigerate until cold; cover and keep refrigerated. Rewarm soup over medium-low heat before continuing.)

Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with chives and parsley and serve.
