  1. When does the corn get added if it’s fresh corn? 

  2. Wow this looks great! I just have one question. When adding the milk and Corn starch do you stir it after adding or just pour it in and leave it?

  3. Ever make it on the stove? 

    • Julie,

      I haven’t made it on the stove, but if you cook the sausage and dice the potatoes and boil them for 5 minutes and then incorporate them into the recipe you could make it on the stove without the long cooking time. Let me know if you try it.
      Shannon 🙂

  4. What about can corn when can I add it, and can it be any sausage?
