Reviews for Easy Sausage Chowder
"This tastes soooooo good and it is so simple to make, a wonderful soup. I have used whatever smoked sausage I have on hand."
"I substituted 2- 1# pkgs of frozen corn. Thawed them first , drained them then added them to the pot. It is goooood. I also added a couple shakes of garlic powder, a stock of celery and a large diced carrot."
"A tasty change of pace from our usual corn chowder. Will be making this again!"
"This is delicious and hearty. I added a bit of minced garlic to the broth for a bit more zip. I served it with a fresh loaf of crusty bread. will make this again."
"Simple and delicious. You can't get better than that. Even my picky 7 year old scraped her bowl."
"Have made this several times before and finally getting around to rating!It's a super simple, inexpensive and comforting soup! I just increase the onion a little and just perfect every time. We enjoy a nice salad and warm bread and that just rounds it out!Thank you so much for such a terrific recipe!"
"Well, I missed this the first time I looked through these recipes....found one very similar, and rated it instead. Now I see this one.....it deserves five stars, and yes, I'll make it again! (even though I didn't make the other one, I'll bet it's a five star recipe too......almost exactly like this one!)"
"I have been making this recipe for since I discovered it in my TOH Annual Recipes that year...to make fewer calories AND Lactose free, I use turkey or chicken sausage, LactAid milk, and either a smidge of flour or cornstarch to thicken it. You can skip the creamed corn in favor of extra plain corn too. I sometimes change up on basil, depending on the kind of sausage."
"How could one make this with less calories ..skim milk?EB"
