If you're watching your carb intake this is a good recipe to substitute cauliflower for the potatoes. I actually prefer this soup with the cauliflower over the potatoes. To cut the fat/calories using half (or more) the amount fat free evaporated milk and replacing the other half (or more) with organic chicken broth is really good too. I do saute a couple cloves of minced garlic in with the onion and I'll shake in a little red pepper flake. Read More

Made as is this is delicious. I didn't cook my potatoes ahead of time I just threw them in with the sausage and the corn to simmer. I also used skim milk and it thickened up nicely. Aside from the entire stick of butter or margarine and the entire pound of sausage this is a pretty healthy meal you know not counting these two variables...lol. Next time I'll omit the salt as the sausage makes it salty enough and I'll try a reduced fat smoked sausage. With all that said this is one cheap delicious meal. Read More

DELICIFABULOSITY! I made this yesterday and it is now number 1 favorite of my family. I can't believe how much flavor it has and am glad I doubled it. Being that New Orleans leads the title I had to add a pinch of crushed red pepper a dash of cayenne and a heaping tsp. of Creole seasoning Tony Chachere's original since my husband brought it home from New Orleans recently. I read reviews and also added 4 cloves of garlic since I doubled and a 12 ounce bag of jumbo cooked peeled and deveined shrimp. I threw in uncooked unpeeled potatoes and the frozen shrimp and frozen corn and simmered it for 30 minutes and it was just perfect. This one's a keeper! Read More

Mmmm... I'm eating my second bowl as I type. It's so delicious. Like the prior poster I added the potatoes uncooked in with the sausage and corn. I also added 2 cloves of minced garlic with the onion and I omitted the salt. Yummy! Read More

This was delicious. I did change it up a bit because it was kind of bland. As suggested by prior reviews I added quite a bit of Tony's. Also I fried the sausage in a pan and used the fat to sautee the onions and make the rue. This eliminated the need for so much butter. I also used more potatoes to make it more filling. Served with warm French bread...it was ummy yummy!!!! Read More

I have never written a review on any of the recipes I have gotten from this sight and I use one alteast everyday. I have to say something about this dish. This recipe was fantastic!! I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic and omitted the potato(only because I didnt have any). I also added 1 tsp of cajun seasoning other than that I followed the recipe. I could have eaten the entire pot myself. My 12 year old extremely picky daughter liked it also. I will most definately make this again and pass the recipe along to others. Read More

Very yummy. I fed my family this and they loved it. Especially on this snowy night. This meal was made on a budget and good. I used the suggestion to cook the sausage and use the fat from that to make the rue. We will be making this meal again very soon. Thank you. Read More
