If it's cold weather then it's time for corn chowder



1/2 cup diced bacon
4 medium potatoes, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
about 2 cups water
2 (12 ounces each) cans of creamed corn
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups milk

In a large pot, sauté bacon until browned and crisp; add onions and cook until opaque. Add the chopped potatoes to the pot! Add water, to just cover the onions and potatoes and cook until the potatoes are fork tender. Add the creamed corn to the pot. (Do not drain the potatoes first) Stir in milk and re-heat. Do not boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

This is good even if you don't use the bacon. Just cook onions in a little melted margarine or butter until they are opaque. Then add the potatoes and continue per the recipe.


That sounds good! and easy :) I like to take the hearty soups that I make and buy a "Atlanta Bread sourdough bread bowl" for a dollar....cut that open like a bowl, heat it and then put the soup in it. It is wonderful...and this sounds like it lends itself to that! Thanks for sharing it. :thumb
