Creamy Sausage Corn Chowder - Yum!
It has been so very cold this Winter in Central Pennsylvania and it is the perfect time for soups and chowders. I enjoy creating new soups and this one sure was a nice change. It warmed us up on a very snowy Saturday.
- 1 lb
- sausage links, your choice of flavor, sliced
- 1/2 medium
- onion, chopped
- celery stalks, chopped
- 2 medium
- carrots, sliced (about 1/2 inch in size)
- cheddar and onion frozen perogies
- 32 oz
- veggie stock or low sodium chicken broth
- 2 c
- frozen corn
- 3 Tbsp
- 1/4 c
- all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 c
- fat free half and half
- freshly ground pepper to taste
1In a large pan cook the sausage, onion and celery over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink.
2Add the veggie stock or chicken broth, perogies and carrots. Bring this to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer, do not cover, for 20 to 25 minutes until the perogies are tender. Add the corn and simmer another 10 to 15 minutes.
3In a small pan melt the butter, stir in the flour and mix until nice and smooth. I used a whisk. Now gradually add the half and half, bring the mixture to a boil and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes stiring constantly until it thickens up. Add this to the soup base. Simmer for a few minutes until it is nice and creamy and all the ingredients have been incorporated. Serve with your favorite bread.
