This is a bowl full of goodness. I really love this soup/chowder meal. Plus, it’s super easy and requires only one pot…love that. This meal will keep you warm all the way to spring.
1 pound sausage (pork, turkey, chicken…just a good quality sausage…you can even use something like Owen’s breakfast sausage)
1 onion, chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and chopped (the smaller you chop the potatoes, the faster the soup will cook)
3 cups of milk (see below for another option)
2 bay leaves, dried or fresh
1 can cream corn
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and Salt & Pepper, of course!
In a large pot, brown sausage in a little EVOO. Remove browned sausage into a bowl and cover with foil to keep warm (we’ll put it back in at the end). Add chopped onion to pot and saute in sausage drippings. Add in potatoes, milk and bay leaves. Simmer 20 minutes (or until potatoes are tender), stirring often. Once potatoes are fork tender, add sausage back into soup and also add in cream corn. Heat through (another 5 minutes). Serve and top with cheese.
So simple. So hearty. So, so yummy. This stuff also re-heats beautifully. I just love this soup. Make sure you use a sausage…using just ground beef won’t give you the same amount of flavor. And only one pot to clean up. Delightful.
**Sometimes, I want to lighten this up a bit, so I only use 1.5 cups of milk and then use 1.5 cups of chicken stock as well. Great flavor with a little less milk.**
