Sausage Shrimp Chowder



HAPPY 200th POST...


I really love to eat soup in the winter; I also think I have been pushing it with my husband with all of the soups and chowders we have been having lately. Don't get me wrong he likes soup but I think I have a bigger love for it than he does, that is until now. On Sunday we created chowder that he simply loved, it was such a quick and easy chowder to toss together too. I mean come on, just how can you go wrong with a soup that has sausage, shrimp, taters and corn.


3 Tbs. - Butter
1 Small - Onion Diced
2 Tbs. - Chopped Garlic
1 Lbs. - Bulk Sausage (I used Chicken Basil Garlic)
1 lbs. - Medium Raw Shrimp (peeled & deveined)
4 C. - Chicken Stock
3 C. - Half & Half
2 - Par-Boiled Potatoes (diced)
2 Tbs. - Garlic Powder
2 Tbs. - McCormick's Steak Seasoning
Salt & Pepper to taste


In a heavy bottomed soup pot over medium heat, melt the butter and sauté the onion and garlic for about 5 minutes, do not brown. Add the sausage and stir to break it up, cook for 7-10 minutes or until cooked through. Raise the heat to medium high and add the shrimp, broth and seasonings. Cook for about 5 minutes then add the half & half, stir in the potatoes and simmer for another 15 minutes. Ladle into bowls and serve with some crusty bread.

Another reason I like you - we are soup sisters!!

I may have told you this before but the first dinner I made for my husband was homemade chicken noodle soup, with homemade bread and herbed butter. He loved it!

I cleaned everything up and said "ready for the movies?" and he said "what's for dinner?!" It was then that I realized soup for him was an appetizer! :D

Love this soup - its going on the list! :D

The soup looks sooo good. I like that you used the steak seasoning with shrimp and sausage in the soup. Very unexpected but oh so brilliant!
