Wintry Warmth Sausage, Corn, and Potato Chowder

After nearly a full month of chocolate recipes, are you ready for a warm and savory dish for winter warmth?

I have to say, it’s been hot here in the south.  We haven’t eaten many dishes for wintry warmth this month.  As of today, cold weather is back!  We want to get good and tired of cold to welcome spring more enthusiastically.  😉

HH thoroughly enjoyed this meaty warm chowder.

And, if you’d prefer no meat, simply stop before the final step, which is adding cooked ground sausage (or beef if you like).

Corn Potato Chowder

Step one is chopping red potatoes into a rough chop and placing them onto a roasting pan.

Making Corn Potato Cheesy Chowder

Chop yellow onion and add to red potatoes, and then add drained canned corn.  Or, you could use frozen corn – no draining necessary.

Mix all together with olive oil and roast in the oven.

While the veggies are roasting, make a roux.

    Looks like I’ll be making your chowder this weekend while our temps in NE Ms. stay low. I think I’ll use some sliced smoked turkey sausage in mine since that’s what I have in the frig. Appreciate this great sounding recipe, Kim.

      This recipe sounds real good , now that the temperature has gotten cooler!
      I would have to add sausage to mine because the hubby has to have his meat ! 😉

      Smoked turkey sausage sounds very good! I’m glad you’re making the chowder this weekend. Looks like it’ll be warm again in no time. I hope your weekend is great! 🙂

        I’m a little late in making your chowder but we had this today for supper. It was delicious! Roasting the veggies first sure adds flavor and it was fairly quick to make. Can’t wait for these leftovers this weekend. Thanks!

          Thank you, Sandra, for getting back to me! Very few people report back, so thanks very much for taking the time to tell me how you like the recipe. Happy weekend! 🙂

    I CAN HAVE THIS!!!! WHOOP WHOOP!

    I will use ghee instead of butter, veggie broth (from Wegman’s…no yeast in that brand. We happen to have some!), and probably grass fed beef. No cheese on top, tho.

    I loved creamed corn so anything made using it is GOOD! LOL!

    ST can have it if I don’t use regular flour….and she will have to take hers before I add the beef. But it can work for us.

      Woo-hoo is right! Finally, I gave you a recipe for food you can actually eat. I’m so glad, Robin. I hope you all enjoy it. Happy weekend! 🙂
