Potato, Corn, Bacon Chowder

Hi there readers,

This soup almost quite literally saved my life. Yesterday was a super long day, and I got home late to an empty house and had no idea what I was going to get in me for dinner, until I remembered I had made this the day before. Life saver!! And even more delicious than the first time around, too!

Peel, chop, and boil your potatoes to start.
While that's going on, fry up your bacon and chop up.
Saute your onions in olive oil or some of that bacon grease!
This is the same pot the onions started in, just with milk and potatoes added, and mashed slightly.
All finished, with corn and bacon added; though soups are difficult to capture in pictures this stuff smells amazing!

Potato, Corn, and Bacon Chowder
-1/2 package bacon, fried and chopped up
-1 onion, diced
-3 tablespoons olive oil (or bacon grease)
-3 tablespoons flour
-4 cups milk, warmed
-1 lb potatoes, peeled, chopped, and boiled until fork-tender
-1/2 lb. frozen corn
-salt and pepper to taste
Sauté onion in the fat of your choosing, then sprinkle the flour over and stir well. Stir milk in and let boil for 2-3 minutes to form the base of your soup. Add in potatoes and mash slightly. Add in corn and bacon and stir well. Let simmer together a few minutes before serving, sprinkle with a little bacon, or cheese if you're feeling that!

All done and ready to eat- easy and delicious. Yum!

Savor it!
love, rue
