  1. Place the bouillon cubes, onion, potatoes, and cabbage into a large soup pot. Pour in enough water to cover the vegetables by about 1 inch. Bring to a boil, then simmer over medium heat for 15 minutes. Add the sausage, and cook for an additional 20 minutes. Reduce heat to low, and stir in cheese and evaporated milk. Cook just until heated through and cheese is melted - do not allow the soup to boil. Remove from heat, and serve immediately.

The cheese adds a nice flavor and makes the dish more exciting than my similar recipe. The cheese has to be added when the pot is simmering lightly or when turned off, because if you have the po...

I thought this chowder was awesome. I sauted 2 cloves of garlic and two chopped onions. Then I added the potatoe, sausage and cabbage to the pot. I used one 48 oz. can of chicken broth and si...

I made this for a german feast and everybody loved it! I took someone else's advice from another review to make a cheese sauce before adding it to the rest of the soup. I just made a little bit ...

I crumbled the sausage and cooked before starting. I read the reviews while the vegetables were simmering. After seeing that most thought it was watery, I took out 3-4 cups of the broth. I turne...

This soup was DELICIOUS! I used chicken broth base instead of water and bouillon. Also added garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste (more than a pinch). We liked it a lot and I definitely p...

Really good! I used fresh polish, it didn't specify, and I prefer fresh to smoked. Take note, this soup is gassy, don't eat too much if you are in a no-fart zone for the next 5 hours.

This chowder turned out PERFECT I didn't read the reviews until just now, but it was wonderful. They only thing I did different was add instant mashed potatoes (butter flavor) instead of whole p...

This is really yummy comfort food. I didn't have potatoes so I used egg noodles instead. I will dice the sausage next time and put the shredded cheese on top (it was gummy mixed in the soup) b...
