cheesy sausage soup from Sybil



  • 1 package mild ground sausage
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 3 T flour
  • 2- 32 ounce cartons chicken broth
  • 1/2 (32 ounces) package frozen cubed hash browns
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 (16 ounce) package processed cheese product, cubed
  • 1 cup sour cream

In large pan, cook sausage, onions, and peppers until sausage is brown and crumbly.  Add flour, and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes.  Gradually stir in broth, hash browns and corn. Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Stir in cheese until melted;  stir in sour cream—do not boil.

Serve with sour cream.

That was her original version.  What I did is a package of sausage cooked with dried onions.  I sprinkled on the flour and then added water (the same liquid amount) and chicken powdered bouillon–to taste.  I then added 2 cans of corn and 5 big potatoes cubed up.  I boiled that until the potatoes were soft and then I added 1 cup of mashed potato flakes.  Just to thicken it a little more.  I then added my processed cheese. Mine was frozen, so I just kept stirring it over the course of an hour over low heat.  Before serving I added my sour cream.  It was so good.  Definitely a winner!
