If you're watching your carb intake, this is a good recipe to substitute cauliflower for the potatoes. I actually prefer this soup with the cauliflower over the potatoes. To cut the fat/calories, using half (or more) the amount fat free evaporated milk and replacing the other half (or more) with organic chicken broth is really good, too. I do saute a couple cloves of minced garlic in with the onion and I'll shake in a little red pepper flake.
Rating three because without changes this was vary bland even with using conecuh brand sausage that has a wonderful flavor. Followed recipe until end, tasted final product and had to do what other reviewers mentioned, added tony's and other seasonings to give it more flavor.
Made as is, this is delicious. I didn't cook my potatoes ahead of time, I just threw them in with the sausage and the corn to simmer. I also used skim milk, and it thickened up nicely. Aside from the entire stick of butter or margarine and the entire pound of sausage, this is a pretty healthy meal, you know, not counting these two variables...lol. Next time I'll omit the salt, as the sausage makes it salty enough, and I'll try a reduced fat smoked sausage. With all that said, this is one cheap, delicious meal.
DELICIFABULOSITY! I made this yesterday, and it is now number 1 favorite of my family. I can't believe how much flavor it has, and am glad I doubled it. Being that New Orleans leads the title, I had to add a pinch of crushed red pepper, a dash of cayenne, and a heaping tsp. of Creole seasoning, Tony Chachere's original since my husband brought it home from New Orleans recently. I read reviews and also added 4 cloves of garlic since I doubled, and a 12 ounce bag of jumbo cooked, peeled and deveined shrimp. I threw in uncooked unpeeled potatoes and the frozen shrimp and frozen corn and simmered it for 30 minutes and it was just perfect. This one's a keeper!
Mmmm... I'm eating my second bowl as I type. It's so delicious. Like the prior poster, I added the potatoes, uncooked, in with the sausage and corn. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic with the onion, and I omitted the salt. Yummy!
This was tasty and easy - a quick, hearty meal that received the family stamp of approval. I took a shortcut and just tossed in two cans of diced potatoes and it was on the table in no time. I served it with sour cream and green onion biscuits to rave reviews.
This was delicious. I did change it up a bit because it was kind of bland. As suggested by prior reviews I added quite a bit of Tony's. Also I fried the sausage in a pan and used the fat to sautee the onions and make the rue. This eliminated the need for so much butter. I also used more potatoes to make it more filling. Served with warm French bread...it was ummy yummy!!!!
Delicious, I did add my own changes, used canned milk with a little added water, I short on milk, it worked great, frozen sweet white corn, cooked the potatoes as suggested with the Bisque. My husband said he liked it a lot. I used red pepper and we also enjoyed a little hot sauce.
