Potato Chowder Recipe

Updated on February 1, 2010

I love to cook and learned from two of the best cooks I know, My grandma and my mother. My grandma could make a feast out of anything. I eventually picked up on her habit on never measuring anything and to this day I still don't. I do it all by eye. So far, like my grandma I have never had any complaints.

Soups have become my specialty I enjoy making them and comming up with different recipes. They are very versatile and will hit the spot all year long. Truthfully it's hard to mess up a soup but it does take a bit of know how in blending the right ingredients so I'd like to share some of my favorite recipes. I'll try to give you a starting point of ingredient amounts based on what I generally use in making these soups.

Please check back for more of my soup recipes including:

Grandmas' Beef Vegetable -

Thick Ham and Bean -

Quick and Easy Chili -



In a 4 qt. saucepan Put about 6 large peeled diced and washed potatoes

1 diced medium onion

4 large stalks of celery diced and washed

Fill the pan half full of water

Add 1 stick of real butter

Add about 1 teaspoon of minced garlic or

1/2 a teaspoon of garlic powder

Parsely to taste

Salt and Pepper to taste

Throw in about a tablespoon of celery seed ( optional)

Fry up a half pound of mild sausage Drain the grease and add to above ingredients.

Cook till the potatoes are done, don't over cook. You want the potatoe chunks to be cooked through but still firm.

Add half a pint of sour cream and stir till blended.

Serve with or with out crackers.

Hope you enjoy this.
