German Sausage Chowder

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Karen From Colorado

This very flavorful soup is so good on a cold night served with hot French bread or homemade bread. I found it in a Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, published in 1981.

Delicious winter tummy warmer! I followed the recipe to a T, but used 1/2 cup Swiss cheese and 1/2 cup cheddar. Served with warm crispy rolls fresh out the oven. Thanks Karen. =)
