Corn Chowder Recipe

Recommended Posts

It's storming here and after doing all that corn yesterday I keep thinking of Corn Chowder.

This is my favorite chowder.

Corn Chowder

1/2 pound sausage.

(Any kind, Italian, my favorite is smoked with garlic)

1 onion, chopped

1 green pepper, chopped

2 1/2 cups chicken broth

1 tsp. dried Thyme

1/4 tsp. Salt

2 medium Potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes

2 cups Corn, fresh or frozen

1 1/2 cups milk or cream

(Optional) Grated cheddar cheese, any amount, I use about a cup.

Flour or starch for thickening.

If you are using a sausage like Italian remove from the casing. If using a smoked type cut into fat slices and half or quarter.

Brown the sausage meat with the onions and green peppers, drain any fat. Add chicken broth, thyme and salt.

Bring to a boil, add potatoes and corn and return to boil. Cover and simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes until potatoes are done.

Mix you flour or starch with the milk or cream and stir into soup. Stir over medium heat until bubbly and thick.

Add cheese if using, stir and serve.

Have fun with it, try different types of sausage or switch green peppers for red, add hot sauce, try different herbs, different cheeses.

That looks delish! Must try it. I do a very simple "chowder" (all the real cooks avert your eyes) by using chicken breast, Pacific Chicken Broth, Tinkyada Fettuccine broken into noodle-sized pieces, and creamed corn topped with Pecorino Romano.

Definitely trying yours though-- it is supposed to cool down here after today:)
