Amy’s Sausage and Cheese Chowder
1 pound smoked sausage, cut into 1/2 inch slices
4 cups frozen O’Brien or Southern style cubed hash brown potatoes, slightly thawed
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 can (14.5 ounces) French style green beans, drained
2 cans (10.75 ounces) cream of celery soup
Dash hot sauce
1 box (16 ounces) processed cheese, cut into cubes
3 to 4 cups milk
Splash of beer (We like beer in just about everything in Wisconsin!)
Shredded Wisconsin sharp cheddar cheese
Place the first 6 ingredients in a slow cooker. Next add 3 cups of milk and the processed cheese cubes. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours, stirring often. Add a splash (or more) of beer and more milk if needed. Stir well. Keep on warm setting until ready. Serve hot with shredded cheddar cheese and scallions on top.
