Serves 6

1 ½ pound ground sausage
1 medium onion (chopped coarsely)
6 medium potatoes (peeled, chopped, cooked)
1 bay leaf
2 cans cream-style corn
5 cups whole milk
6 English Muffins, toasted

In a large pot, cook sausage until lightly browned. Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat until potatoes are tender and chowder is hot. Do not boil. Serve with toasted English muffin.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 30-45 minutes
Ease of Preparation: Easy

Notes from Paula’s test kitchen:  We added Paula’s House Seasoning to taste as this chowder was a little bland at first. This chowder is thinner than most chowders. To thicken, take ¼ cup of liquid from chowder. Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, mix and add to warm chowder and stir well.

I chose this recipe for the ease of ingredients and time. It was well worth it! I added pepper, thyme, no salt seasoning and 2 TBLS corn starch. I am looking forward to left overs tonight!

I am going to try this recipe next weekend! Sounds yummy! I plan to omit the bay leaf & add chili powder, a little cumin, green bell pepper, salsa, and a can of black beans, Oh! a lots of garlic. Wish me sweet success!

i made this recipe because i was in a time crunch and I needed something other than fast food for the kids - i added more cornstarch and it was really great and very tasty i will make this again
