Is there anything better than a hot bowl of chowder on a cold afternoon? Or a cool afternoon… Or a warm afternoon….. or a hot afternoon….. yes I know it’s weird but I eat chowder or soup mid day on a boiling summers’ day. And seriously regret it long after the incredible taste has left my mouth, leaving my body still steaming hot… yet I do it all over again the next day!

There really is nothing better than soup, chowder or salad for lunch. It’s hard to decide between my Hearty Hamburger Soup or this bacon potato corn chowder if I don’t have salad to use up.

How to make Creamy Bacon, Potato and Corn Chowder

Fry a few slices of bacon in a soup pot or dutch oven until bacon is crispy. Remove the bacon and set aside, leaving the grease in the pot. Add diced celery and onion and cook until the onion is transparent. Add some garlic, thyme, salt and pepper and cook for one minute. Mix in peeled and chopped potatoes and cook for a couple minutes, stirring often. I like to use this cutting board so I don’t get burned! To the pot add corn and chicken stock. The potatoes should be just covered by the stock. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 15-20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.

Set the chowder aside to cool for 10 minutes before transferring half to a heat safe bowl. Using a immersion blender, puree half of the soup. Return the puree to the soup pot and stir well, then add the bacon and warmed cream. Bring the chowder up to a light simmer for a couple minutes, season to taste with salt and pepper, serve and enjoy!

What goes with chowder?

I am obsessed with my best friends recipe for The Best Ever Cheese Biscuits! They are seriously ridiculous. I never liked biscuits at all until I had hers, grudgingly, at her house one day. I thought ‘okay Aleta, you can do this… yes you hate biscuits, but you also love your besties cooking so they must be edible…’ boy was I off!

They were incredible!

Moist and salty and crispy all at the same time! Absolutely delicious! The recipe has a special spot in my cook book now, and I promise to share the recipe with you soon! Soup, chowders and stews in my house rarely go without these amazing Best Ever Cheese Biscuits, but if you don’t have the same opinion as I do with them, give these a try:

Can you freeze chowder?

You sure can! I always have some sort of delicious soup or chowder hanging out in my freezer for when the crave hits! They store great for 4-6 months! This past time unfortunately my husband decided to eat almost the whole pot… I managed to squeeze one single extra bowl for my freezer! And then caved when my sister said she was coming for lunch the next day. How could I deny her? Maybe next batch…

Tips and Tricks

  • Have leftovers? Store these in the freezer in small ziplock freezer bags for easy thawing, perfect portion control and space saving!
  • Use thick sliced bacon and get it nice and crispy! It will give the chowder an excellent texture and the bacon won’t get lost in the mix.
