i've been fighting a cold now for what seems like weeks. nothing better than a big pot of soup when you've got the sniffles!
corn & sausage chowder
1 lb. pork sausage
1 c. onion, diced
4 c. potato, peeled and cubed
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme (or marjoram, or oregano)
2 c. water
1 can cream corn
1 can whole kernel corn
1 12 oz. can evaporated milk (you can use fat free)
Brown sausage with onion in dutch oven or kettle. Drain grease well. Return meat mixture to pot with potatoes, salt, pepper, thyme, and water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes. Add in corn and milk, and heat through.
this is one of those meals that i forget about until i make it again, and then i wonder why i don't make it more often. easy peasy, it's ready in a half hour.
let me know if you give it a try!
