Easter Breakfast Soup

Gratuitous photo of neighbouring cat
I put this here for my own seasonal purposes:

Seraphic's Easter Żurek 

500 mL bottle of kwas 
1.5 L of very good vegetable broth (I use Kallo cubes.)
4 raw white kielbasa sausages (actually pinkish)
bay leaf
1 Tbsp of marjoram
2 allspice grains
4 peppercorns
2 crushed cloves of garlic

1. Make up your lovely vegetable broth and throw in the herbs and spices. Bring to boil.
2. Boil the sausages for 15-20 minutes in the broth. Then fish them out and cut them up.
3. Continue to simmer the broth and lightly fry the sausage.
4. Pour in the kwas. Unless you know you love fermented soup, taste as you go.
5. Throw the  fried sausage into the broth-kwas mix and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.
5. Squish two cloves of garlic until they are extremely squished and throw them in the simmering broth.
5. Taste to see if you want to add salt.
6. Hard-boil two or three eggs.
7. Put half an egg into each bowl and ladle the żurek over it.  

You can make this dish a day ahead and put it in the fridge, but don't add the eggs until you are about to serve it. It will feed 4-6 people as a breakfast (if they compute soup for breakfast) or first course, served with proper rye bread and not white American/British supermarket bread, the horror.

Update: Also for my seasonal purposes: mazurek czekoladowo-kajmakowy
