My son Brooks is home from college for the holidays right now, so I thought I’d update this Sausage and Corn Chowder post with a video and share it again. He was just 12 years old when he made this soup back in 2014. It’s fun to see him so little when he’s 19 now!  I’ll be sharing current pictures of him soon so you can see how he has changed. In the meantime, enjoy this older post with a new video!

Brooks’ original post:

To add to the list of why I love the East Coast so much, I love chowdah! Although I usually eat clam chowder, I decided to mix it up for a change. Today I made Sausage and Corn  Chowder. Believe me, it was wicked awesome!

The chowder itself was a work of art and so easy to make! We didn’t do hardly any prepping before this picture! And if you can even imagine this… it tastes even better than it looks!

I cut the sausage and the onions and browned them in the pot. They made the soup pretty flavorful. Later I added the spices, potatoes, corn, water and milk. This recipe was pretty basic.
