German Sausage Chowder

by KM

We love to make this in our Dutch oven:

1 pound cooked bratwurst or knackwurst -- cut into chunks
2 medium potatoes -- peeled and coarsely diced
1/2 cup onion -- chopped
4 cups cabbage -- shredded
1 can whole kernel corn
3 cups milk
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded aged Swiss cheese
Snipped parsley, for garnish

1. In a large saucepan or Dutch oven, combine sausage, potatoes, onion, 1/2 tsp. salt, and dash pepper.
2. Add 2 cups water. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover; simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are nearly tender.
3. Stir in cabbage (and corn if desired); cook 10 minutes more or until vegetables are tender.
4. Stir in 2 1/2 cups of the milk. Stir remaining 1/2 cup milk into flour; stir into soup.
5. Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly.
6. Stir in cheese till melted. Garnish with parsley.
