2. When reduced, add potatoes and fill with water to 1 inch above contents.
3. Add bouillon cubes and bring up to boil before dropping down to simmer.
4. Add pepper and parsley. Stir occasionally.
5. Simmer for 30 minutes.

******Notice there is no salt added to this soup... the bouillon, sausage and butter salt this soup nicely.******

*They sell andouille sausage at Costco here in Korea... but any link sausage or brat would work. Mmm... smoked sausage...
