All of us can vouch for this recipe when we say, "THIS IS AMAZING!" The talented RightThisMinute how-to guru Jessica Hord really out did herself with this Cheesy Italian Sausage Potato Chowder recipe. Let's just say it was devoured within minutes here in the studio.
-- 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
-- 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
-- 1 pound loose spicy Italian sausage
-- 3 cups chicken broth
-- 4 cups peeled & diced potatoes
-- 1 cup diced celery
-- 1 cup heavy cream
-- 1 1/2 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
-- Optional for topping: freshly shredded cheddar cheese and diced green onions
1. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. When hot, add onions and cook until translucent.
2. When onions are ready, add sausage. Once you've broken up and browned the sausage, cover and remove from heat.
3. Pour broth, potatoes and celery into a stockpot. Over medium/hight heat, bring to a boil.
4. Once soup begins to boil, reduce heat to medium. Add cream, cheese, and sausage mixture and simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Serve with toppings. You're done!
