Recipe: Cheesy Italian Potato Chowder

Ingredients (adjust quantities as necessary)
1/2 cup diced Onion
1 pound Louie's Pizza Sausage
1/2 tsp extra virgin Olive Oil
4 cups peeled diced Potato
3 cups Chicken Stock or Broth
1 cup diced Celery
1 cup Cream or Milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
Diced Green Onions (optional)

  • In a pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. When hot, add the onions and cook until translucent. Add the Pizza Sausage. Break apart the sausage with a spoon and stir occasionally. Remove from heat when the sausage is browned.
  • In a soup pot, combine the potatoes, chicken stock, and celery. Over medium-high heat, bring to a biol. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the potatoes are tender (about 20 minutes).
  • Use a slotted spoon to transfer the cooked sausage and onions to the soup pot. Add the cream and cheese, stirring until all ingredients are combined and warm.
  • Serve with additional cheddar cheese and sprinkle green onions on top.
