Fresh corn and lots of potatoes coming out of the garden this week inspired this Fresh from the Garden recipe. This is super easy to prep and doesn’t require much work, which makes it a fave for me. The main ingredients are potatoes, corn and smoked pork sausage. Dice the potatoes and smoked sausage into cubes and cut the corn off the cob. The fresher the corn, the sweeter it is. If you pick your corn and aren’t going to use it right away, make sure to refrigerate it to help hold the sweetness.
I pan fried my potatoes and sausage before adding them to the crockpot. This step can be skipped if in a time crunch. This step just helps bring out the flavor. Once browned, add them to the crockpot along with the corn. We do not eat much dairy at our house and use coconut milk instead of half and half, but feel free to use either one. Add the chicken stock and salt and pepper to the crockpot. You can cook it on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Super easy!
- 5 cups of Cubed Potatoes
- 3 Ears of Corn
- 2 cups Smoked Sausage
- 5 cups of Chicken Stock
- 1 can of Coconut Milk (can use half & half)
- 1 t Salt
- 1 t Pepper
- Dice the potatoes and smoked sausage.
- Brown the potatoes and smoked sausage (this step is optional).
- Cut the corn off the cob and add to the crock pot.
- Add the potatoes and smoked sausage along with the remaining ingredients.
- Cook on high for 3 – 4 hours or on low for 8 hours.
- That’s it! Enjoy!
Side note: Might need to season a little more depending on your taste. This does not create a thick soup. Cooking in a crockpot does not allow any evaporation so it stays very soupy. It does thicken overnight in the refrigerator.
