Sausage-Corn Chowder

  I have had a request for more of my famously easy (and delightfully delicious I would add IF I were vain--which I most certainly am NOT!) recipes.  So, since we had a definite setback in the warming up for spring turned BLIZZARD department, I resorted to one more pot of rib-sticking soup.  A longtime family favorite.  So here goes....

In a soup pot place one pound of Sage flavored ground Sausage 
and one large, chopped onion.  Stir till well cooked.

Then add about 5-6 large peeled, chopped potatoes,
(OR you can cheat and just dump in a 2lb 
bag of frozen hash brown potatoes!)
cover it all just barely with water,
and simmer till potatoes are fork tender.

Then add Two 1 lb cans of creamed corn,
One 1 lb. can of drained whole kernel corn (I like white corn best),
1 tsp. dried parsley,
1 tsp. dried basil
and pepper to taste.
Optional: a dash or two of hot sauce
Also add some dried sage if you couldn't find Sage flavored Sausage.


Bring all to a gentle boil,
then pour in one can of Evaporated Milk.
Stir till thickened.
Serve up with some hot biscuits.


When I was making this soup I called my Uncle who lives in Texas.
I had served this soup once to him and his wife many years ago when they visited us, 
and they had asked for the recipe.  So I told him what I was cooking, and he said,
 "How about that--we just had that same soup for lunch.  That is our FAVORITE soup!"  
(That's why I love him.)
