Wild Mushroom Soup with Turnip Pickled

Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup


My virgin of the Hash Browns, added leek, eggs and sausages! This is came out a nice combination adding extra flavor and texture to the hash, however I used for this particular recipe a chicken sausage, and the truth I wan't impressed, thought it's less fat!! But wasn't worth, or may be the particular sausage I used wasn't great! originally I made the recipe with Chorizo and German or Spanish traditional sausage, and always came out superb!!
It's important not to let the leeks over-coked and drain all the excessive water from the shredded potato, so that gives it extra textures and crispness. Finally serve the dish with German sauerkraut and cucumber is the balance for the dish... hope you try it.
