Sausage Corn Chowder Ingredients

Twelve ingredients are needed to make this fabulous Sausage Corn Chowder! So here’s what you need:

  • Olive Oil and Yellow Onion – to saute and to add flavor! Simple yet powerful ingredients here.
  • Smoked Sausage – I decided to use smoked sausage for this chowder but feel free to use any kind of sausage you want.
  • Red Potatoes – these add some soft texture while adding yummy potato flavor!
  • Sweet Corn – I cooked the whole corn on the cob then cut off the kernels but you can also use frozen or canned corn for a quicker option.
  • Flour – this thickens up the soup without adding more and more fat from the heavy cream.
  • Chicken Stock – while flour thickens the soup chicken stock thins it out without compromising flavor.
  • Bay Leaves, Salt, and Pepper – don’t skip out on the seasonings! Taste as you go 🙂
  • Heavy Cream – this thickens the soup and makes it creamy!
  • Chives – this is a garnish that adds color and some mild flavor.

Leftovers

This is a great chowder to keep as leftovers! It should last in the fridge, in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

If you are looking to freeze this recipe I have a helpful tip for you: leave out the heavy cream! The cream doesn’t freeze well so leave it out until you are ready to serve. To reheat, thaw in the fridge the night before then heat on the stove and add the heavy cream. Freeze for up to three months!

    Is there anything I can used for the creaminess and the thickening that’s healthier than the cream? Love all your recipes and your stories about your family!!
