Notes

Use double the broth, cream, and water for a less chunky soup that better serves ten.
Sausages used : Bockwurst, Schublig, Hungarian
To speed up the recipe prep, you can pre-chop the broccoli and cauliflower or use frozen pre-chopped veggies.
You can easily swap out the sausage and bacon for a plant-based option for a vegetarian version.
