Creamy Sausage Stew Recipe

Meet the Cook: Depending on the time of year, I serve my stew with bread or sweet corn muffins and fresh butter, and with salad or fruit. Then, since it tastes even better the next day, we have it for lunch on the rare occasions there are leftovers! -Rosemary Jesse, Cabool, Missouri

"I made this recipe when it first came out in the magazine back in 1995. I made it steadily for about 10 years. My large family always loved it growing up. Now I make it for my husband and our little girl. He loves sausage and I like how creamy this stew is. It also easy & quick to make, and the ingredients are simple. A five-star winner for us!"

"We love this recipe! I use only 1 pound of lite sausage and I use fat-free half & half instead of heavy cream. I recently adapted the recipe to use the crockpot. Roasted the meat/veggies as usual, then transferred them to a crockpot. Cooked them a couple of hours on Low, then added the cream and cooked 1 hour longer on Low. Then I stirred the cornstarch mixture right into the crockpot and everything worked out well. (I did this because I wanted to be able to take the stew to a church potluck and have it be cooking during church.) I've been making this recipe for years and we always enjoy it."

"I am shocked this recipe won. After reading the reviews I thought I would try it. My family was so disappointed. I think the first review is missing some good recipes if this is a favorite. Sorry but not for me."

"This is an incredibly good-tasting stew, although since there are only two of us, I cut it in half. Also, my husband likes things in smaller pieces, so I cut them up accordingly. I also use half heavy cream and half half-and half."
