An easy to make chowder with a sophisticated taste. The combination and balance of ingredients resulted in an intricate flavor that kept me wanting just one more taste. I used pork breakfast sausage which blended so well with the other ingredient, adding flavor without overpowering. Bravo!
Kelly, this chowder was very delicious. I have been wanting to try it for a while, but just now found the right opportunity. I used spicy bulk pork sausage and it added a lot of extra zing. The seasonings were just right and definitely create a nice flavor. My husband and I took this to work for lunch. It freezes well. Thanks for a great chowder recipe.
I accidentally pick up hot sausage instead of mild. It was great! Next time I will accidentally pick up italian sausage and put just a bit of sage in it for good measure. I bet that would be delicious!
