Reviews for Sausage Chowder
"Love this chowder recipe. It doesn't take long to make, reheats easily the next day and my husband LOVES it! Come to think of it...I LOVE it too. I usually add a little more onion to the recipe...but that's the only change I've made."
"This is one of my favorite Chowder recipes makes my family feel all warm and fuzzy"
"This recipe was super easy to put together. I omitted the corn and added some cheddar cheese and Italian cheese blend, served with a side of cheesy breadsticks, it was a hit with my entire family!"
"Used mild Italian sausage, added 1/2 tsp. Chipotle pepper and 1/2 cup of Tex-Mex Shredded Cheese at the end. Quite tasty! I will also try this with Smoked Sausage to see how it compares. We had cheese croissants with the chowder and they were a perfect compliment. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Wonderful, I used sausage we made from a wild bore I shot. This is a keeper. I did add carrots."
"This was fantastic, what a great creamy flavor I will definitely make this again!"
"I thought this recipe was great. I changed some things. I used Idaho potatoes, put some carrots, chopped red pepper, and skim milk. I also but in 1 1/2 cups of shredded colby jack cheese."
"This is SO good and great on a cold night. My husband was away for a few days and I served this to him when he got home and he said "now I feel like I'm home!" I used canned potatoes so it came together even more quickly. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks Kay!"
"I've made this recipe for the last couple of years and am always asked to share it!! I add a little carrots and sliced mushrooms and substitue fat free half-in-half for half the milk. My family loves it and it's become my signature soup among friends!"
"Absolutely delish. I doubled this recipe so we'd have some leftovers and I'm glad I did. The kids loved it and it was perfect for a cold winter night."
"I've made this twice in two days, but added fried bacon the second time and eliminated the bouillon. I also sauted the vegetables in the bacon drippings, which makes it more tasty, and used evaporated milk. It's a keeper!"
"I have made this receipe a few times now and my husband LOVES it!! I have made it for guests and they all just rave how wonderful it tastes! I use smoked sausage and always double everything, except the sausage."
"Excellent. I used spicy sausage and served it with corn bread. My husband LOVED it after working outside for several hours (20 degrees)! And it's so easy to make!! Thank you, Kay!!!!"
"We doubled everything except the sausage and added 3 small carrots, which we "coined". We used Jimmy Dean's Hot sausage and that provided a nice kick. It was yummy.Made biscuits with it, but I think rolls would have been a better texture match."
"I also doubled the recipe. Used Jimmy Dean Hot Sausage as we like our food spicy. I added 1 cup each chopped onion & celery, 2 sliced carrots & 16 oz. frozen corn...we like our chowder thick. I substituted Chicken Broth for the water & bouillon. Great recipe, Kay, thanks for sharing!"
"Delicious! I used regular Idaho potatoes instead of red potatoes, and I added carrots, and it was sooo tasty. After reading some of the comments, I went ahead and made a double batch, and not a drop was wasted. Fresh biscuits are a great pairing with this."
"Just wanted to say great recipe and so very tasty on a cold winter day or anytime...but I did change one thing I used 3 cupos knorrs chicken stock instead of water and no boullion grandules.......thanks for the recipe.....LESLEY"
"My husband enjoyed it just the way it was - I used Bob Evans Sage sausage - I wouldn't change a thing"
"My family LOVED this recipe!!! We doubled it and added sliced carrots. I used smoked sausage which made it a little faster and easier. Will for sure make again!!!"
"loved it! will definately make it again"
"this is so delicious, my husband ate it for lunch and dinner."
"I found this to be a real belly pleaser. The only thing I added was carrots and chicken stock in place of the 3 cups of water. Yummy, definately a "stop by for chowder and corn bread" night."
"Very flavorful--probably even better today. I used fat free milk, and am sure it would be even better with whole milk"
"very good i added sliced carrots to it i will make it again"
"I tried this for the first time tonight, and we loved it. I added some diced carrots and doubled the recipe. Good thing I did because I don't think we would have had any leftovers."
"This was delicious! I made a few substitutes/additions, but nothing major and I'm sure it would be just as awesome if it was made to-the-recipe: I used Jimmy Dean Italian sausage instead of sage-flavored, Idaho potatoes instead of red, added more pepper than called for and also threw in come Chipotle Chili Powder for an extra kick. I sprinkled a little sharp cheddar cheese on top of each serving once it was in the bowl--yum! I doubled the recipe--the leftovers are fantastic! I'll definitely be making this again!"
"Great recipe. Used Jimmy Dean hot sausage and it was wonderful. No leftovers on this recipe, so I'll have to double next time."
"This was excellent. I used Jimmy Dean sage sausage, and added carrots in with the celery and onions. I also doubled the recipe and the leftovers were even better."
