Pairing creamy corn chowder with smoked sausage makes an excellent blend of flavors in this simple yet hearty soup recipe.


  • 1 package Smoked Sausage, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 15-1/4-ounce can whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 cups cubed potatoes, cooked, drained
  • chopped parsley, optional
  • shredded cheddar cheese to top


  1. Place the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes.
  2. Sprinkle in the flour, salt and pepper, and cook the mixture for 1 minute, stirring constantly to prevent sticking.
  3. Slowly pour in the milk, whisking continuously to blend, and then bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook the mixture for 1 minute and then stir in the corn and the sausage. Return the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the potatoes and cook for an additional 3 minutes, and then ladle into serving bowls. Top with some parsley and cheddar cheese and serve immediately.
