3 lbs Hamburger
2 lbs ground Italian sausage
1 lb bacon chopped up
1 onion chopped up
2 cups frozen corn
2 boxes beef broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp celery salt
1 8oz box cream cheese
1 cup heavy cream
1cup of shredded monterey jack cheese

In a LARGE soup pot add 2 boxes of beef broth and corn and put on low heat.

Meanwhile in a large frying pan, brown hamburger with chopped onions. Season the hamburger with salt, pepper, garlic, thyme, oregano, and celery salt while it’s cooking. When done add to soup pot.

Brown the chopped bacon until somewhat crisp and add to soup pot.

Brown the italian sausage and add to the soup pot. (You can use the same pan you browned the hamburger in)

When all meat has been added to the pot, turn the heat up to medium and add the heavy cream and cheeses. Cook until cheeses have melted.

Tip #1: If you are not worried about keeping the recipe low carb, in the last step also add diced white potatoes or diced white sweet potatoes to the soup pot and simmer until the potatoes are tender.

Tip #2: If you want a thicker chowder, mix 3 tsp of arrowroot starch in with the heavy cream until it’s smooth before you add it to the soup mix.

  1. I am trying this tonight. I would love a picture of the food so when I pin it to Pinterest there’s a nice reference.

  2. Broth is a 32 oz box.

    Sorry, no pics of food around here so far. We tend to just eat and don’t really make a hobby of it. I promise pics for future recipes, but it’s going to take some getting used to.

  3. This is delicious! I love how this recipe makes an enormous amount of food. I won’t have to cook for a week. I soaked up the grease from the bacon on a paper towel before putting it in the chowder because I was afraid of the chowder being too greasy.

    Thanks for posting recipes! I know it’s not really your thing, but this is exactly the kind of recipe I’m looking for. Real human food for real humans, without a lot of fuss and muss.

    I also want to say that I’m so excited for this re-branding you’ve done. I’ve been following you and Sarah for a little over a year, and the advice you two give has really resonated with me. I’m looking forward to more soapboxes and mountaintop shouting. You really do make a difference. Thank you for everything you do!
