Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground breakfast sausage
  • 1 pound gold potatoes
  • 16 oz frozen corn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Instructions

  • Brown ground sausage in skillet over medium high heat or in multi-cooker until fully cooked.  Drain any excess grease.
  • Wash and dice potatoes into bite sized pieces and add to slow cooker along with cooked sausage
  • Add corn, seasonings and vegetable broth
  • Whisk together flour with ¼ cup water until smooth and add to slow cooker
  • Stir everything to combine then cover and cook on high for 3-4 hour or low for 6-8 until potatoes are tender
  • Stir in cream and let heat though another 15 minutes or so

Notes

  • I prefer Yukon gold potatoes for this recipe, but you could also use russet if you prefer them to break down and thicken the soup
  • leftovers can be stored in fridge up to 3 days tightly covered. I don't recommend freezing this recipe
