    Office soup pop luck

    AS the headline says I have an office sou[p pop luck coming up and I want to impress, few things I hate chunks of veggies and onions are only good if they are minced to the point of invisible or just onion powder.

    That said I think I am gonna try an Italian Sausage potato soup recipe I saw.

    Does anyone have any better ideas?

    My wife makes this Zuppa Toscana that is crazy good. The only difference is she uses a whole pound of bacon and a few more potatoes.

      That looks good I might make that for me for "testing purposes"

    can you enter a bowl of red? Tortilla soup is always a winner. Smoke salmon chowder too. I'm a big fan of broccoli and cheese, especially if you char the broccoli first, and don't cook it to death. I mean gumbo or ettufe if your stretching the term.

      Well, I'll state the obvious.... if this is for a pot luck and you want to impress, then why do you care if there are chunks of veggies and onions in the soup?? Most people, and I'm speaking for the peanut gallery, like veggies in their soup. Anything listed above sounds like a winner.

        My office has had an annual "Souper Bowl" competition in early February for several years. My wife is a 3-time winner. She tries to do something different each year. What usually wins are hearty, flavorful soups like gumbo or chicken tortilla soup. One year she made Caldo de Cameron, a Mexican shrimp soup (that one was a winner). So I would say go with something you like, and don't hold back on the flavor.

          One of my favorite things to eat from a bowl (besides Honey Bunches of Oats & Raisin Bran Crunch, among others) is my wife's Chunky Beef Noodle "Stoup".

            This is a go-to fall recipe from a restaurant I used to bartend at. It is curried squash soup and was on our Oktoberfest menu:

              My wife makes a squash soup sometimes. Absolutely fantastic. I'm pretty sure her recipe involves curry. Tastes almost like seafood.

          The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


          The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

          The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


          Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

          Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

          The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.
