    You certainly don't have to serve this chowder in bread bowls, but why wouldn't you? Look for 7- or 8-ounce bread bowls in the Bakery.

    Things To Grab

    • Large stockpot
    • Medium stockpot


    1. Halve sausage lengthwise; remove casings and cut sausage into 1/2-inch slices. Place in a large stockpot; cook over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until brown, stirring occasionally. Remove sausage; set aside. Reserve drippings in stockpot.
    2. Add butter to stockpot. Cook onion and garlic in hot butter until softened. Reduce heat to low. Stir in flour until well-blended. Slowly add broth, stirring constantly. Stir in potatoes, parsley, sage, basil and salt. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
    3. Add half-and-half, corn, bell pepper and reserved sausage to stockpot. Simmer gently for 10 minutes more or until potatoes are tender (do not boil).
    4. Meanwhile, for bread bowls, use a sharp knife to cut off bread tops. Hollow out the middle with a fork or your fingers, leaving thick bread shells. Ladle soup into bread bowls. Garnish with basil, if desired. Serve immediately.
