this was given two thumbs up by both dave and hallie. dave said he could eat this all winter and that will 'stick to his ribs.' i'm not entirely sure i know what he means. and it truly is super simple. and really delicious.
a one-pot wonder!
EASY BACON CORN CHOWDER
1/2 cup diced bacon
4 medium potatoes, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
2 cups water
2 1/2 to 3 cups cream-style corn, 2 (12 ounces each) cans or 1 pound, 4 ounce package frozen
2 teaspoons salt
pepper to taste
2 cups half-and-half or light cream, scalded
*I made mine with almond milk instead of half and half. any milk would do.
Sauté bacon until browned and crisp; add chopped potatoes and onions. Add water, corn, and seasonings; cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Stir in half-and-half; heat through but do not boil. Serves 4.
