Another favorite of mine when I was growing up, I usually make it once a month or so. It’s a hearty soup and is great by itself, or served with BLT or grilled cheese sandwiches, crackers or warm bread and butter. Serves 4-6. I make it for three adults and always have two or three bowls leftover.

It’s a rainy day, and it’s a great time to stay in, read a good book, and have some comfort food.


    4-6 slices of bacon, cut in one-inch pieces
    1 medium onion, chopped
    3-4 potatoes, peeled, cubed (bite-sized pieces), boiled*
    2 cans cream-style corn (very important that it is cream-style)
    2 cans of milk
    salt and pepper to taste


On top of stove, in large pot or dutch oven, cook bacon and onions, then drain.

* I usually boil cubed potatoes separately for about five minutes to speed up the cooking process but, if you prefer, you can just add raw cubed potatoes to chowder and let simmer on low until cooked. Just make sure the milk doesn’t boil over.

Add two cans of cream style corn and two cans of milk, stir. Add bacon pieces, pre-cooked potatoes, salt and pepper. Simmer for a bit until potatoes are tender and flavors are all combined, taste to test. That’s it!

For those of you who think chowder must contain clams or fish:

Chowder (noun)
: a soup or stew of seafood (as clams or fish) usually made with milk or tomatoes, salt pork, onions, and other vegetables (as potatoes); also : a soup resembling chowder (corn chowder)
