Are you enjoying 'SOUP WEEK' sofar?
If you missed Day 1 or Day 2,
here are links to those days:
Oven Baked Beef Stew & White Chicken Chili
Now, on we go to...
Chow down! This is a sweet & salty chowder that hits the spot & certainly satisfies! Sorry, I don't mean to sound like a soup commercial! But the one thing I love most about soups, it's that they're soooo warm & sooo satisfying...wait, that was two things. Oh well! You get the idea!
Bacon Corn Chowder is one of my favorite soups...hence why it's included in Soup Week!
4 bacon strips, cooked & diced
1 small onion, chopped1 celery rib, chopped
1/4 cup chopped green pepper ( I omit)
2 carrots, chopped
4 Cups Potatoes, cubed & peeled
2.5 Cups Chicken Broth
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Dried Thyme
1/4 tsp Pepper
3 Tbsp All-purpose Flour
1 Quart half-and half cream
1 Package (16 oz) Frozen Corn, thawed
1 Can Creamed Corn
In a large saucepan, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain, reserving 1 teaspoon drippings.
In the drippings, saute the onion, celery and green pepper until tender.
Add the potatoes, broth, salt, thyme and pepper.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat; Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Combine flour and cream until smooth; stir into pan.
Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
Stir in bacon.
Mmm Mmm Mmm!
Hand over the fresh homemade bread & I might just go into a coma!
