Corn Chowder I

Corn Chowder I

Made  times

"Warm and soothing corn chowder with the salty bite of crisp bacon. This warms up well in the microwave and even tastes better a day old. I also freeze it in small batches. This makes a big pot of chowder but, it can easily be cut in half."

  1. Boil potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain. Mash half of the potatoes and set aside.
  2. Fry the bacon until very crisp. Crumple the bacon and set aside.
  3. Fry the onion inn the bacon grease until translucent and soft.
  4. Dump the cooked onions into a large stockpot. Add the flour and heat until the mixture is bubbly and the flour is well dissolved. Add the milk and bring to a boil over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. You need to watch your pot pretty carefully while bringing to a boil and heating. The bottom tends to easily scorch. Once boiling add the salt, pepper, bacon, corn and all the potatoes. (If desired reserve some of the bacon for the garnish.)
  5. Heat soup until hot. Serve garnished with a dash of paprika, a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and some crumbled bacon.

I'm only rating it a three because it wasn't my cup of tea. Unfortunately. Sorry I couldn't give it a better review.... :o(

I enjoyed this recipe but needed to make a few changes. I made it twice; using the original recipe and then with some adjustments. The first and most important change is to under-cook the pota...

I gave this recipe a four star rating because of it's room for variability. I did make a few changes. I did not use bacon, (my husband is not a huge fan) and substituted with chicken as reccomen...

First of all, when you look at the ratings of a recipe, make sure that the person followed the recipe given and didn't add or take away from it. Adding ingredients such as extra veggies can actu...

Delicious! The only changes I made were that I cut way down on the amount of onion (my kids' preference) and I substituted 1 can of creamed corn for regular canned corn. I think adding frozen ...

I thought this corn chowder was excellent. I added salt but this is just the way I like my food - also, I added masa flour to thicken it just a bit as it was a little runny. I would make this ...

This recipe was good as is and great with changes. I added garlic, cayenne, onion powder, garlic salt, chicken broth and regular canned corn. At the last minute I had guests so I had to double i...

Mmmm... this was delicious! Though I'm sure it would be equally good if I had followed the recipe exactly, I made a few changes: used a half pound of bacon, about 7 cups of milk, 2 cubes of ch...

Awesome chowder! Best recipe I have tried. Used 3 cans of creamed corn and 1 can of regular corn and used 1/2 & 1/2 instead of milk. And a little butter and a little minced garlic. My husband...
