Sausage Chowder

This is one of our favorite soups. It is very, very simple and quick to make, tastes absolutely delicious, and we keep the ingredients on hand. (Keeping sausage in the freezer.) It's a great go-to meal and will really warm you up in the winter! I estimate that this will serve 4-6 people.

Sausage Chowder
  • 1 lb. cooked smoked sausage (I have used the links, Kielbasa, Italian sausage, and crumbled sausage in the tube... it all works - just use what you have/like/is on sale!)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 c. diced potatoes (if you are in a hurry, cube shaped hash browns work very well!)
  • 3 c. chicken broth
  • 2 Tbs. fresh parsley (or 2 tsp. dried)
  • 1 Tbs. fresh basil (or 1 tsp. dried)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • fresh cracked pepper to taste
Brown the sausage and onion in a little oil in a large saucepan. Add the garlic when the onion is nice and soft and let it cook for a few minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and bring it to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer until the potatoes are soft.

Tastes wonderful with these Easy Drop Biscuits... especially if you put cheese in them and brush herb butter on top (see the variations at the end).
