Thinking of my Mom: Casing Frank Red Potato Soup


We had a cookout a couple days ago and I ended up with some left-over grilled casing franks.
Oh how I love casing franks on the grill. Especially when they get dark and the skins split.....

I know it's not soup weather for crying out loud....but potato soup is considered a comfort food, and I need all the comfort I can get....


As I was thinking about what to do with my left-over casing franks, other than reheating and sticking in a bun, thoughts of my Mom came flooding in. My Mom used to make a hot dog potato soup when I was a kid. We would eat that soup until the pot was dry. Yes, it was that good.....
So, I did my best to recreate my Mom's hot dog potato soup.
And I measured everything out for you.
