Is This Corny Enough For You? Sunday Recipe

Here in the Midwest
these good old boys
like their soups
their chowders.

MyHero loves corn chowder.
I have tried many, many recipes
over the years.
The one that tastes the best
is the simplest one to make.

Crockpot Corn Chowder

Fry up 1/2# of bacon until it is crisp.

Drain on paper towels.
Clean pan and add back a couple
tablespoons of the bacon grease.
Add to pan and saute until tender:
1 large stalk diced celery
4 green onions snipped fine
(or 1/4 cup finely chopped onion)
(I actually microwaved mine for 2 minutes)
In Crockpot:
One large bag of frozen corn.
One can Cream style corn.
2-3 cups milk or half & half.
Add bacon, celery & onions.
Turn on high for about 3 hours.
Lower to low setting for another hour or so.


And..while you are eating
look out your window to see
if you can see
SOMEONE eating THEIR corn.
Here's the recipe:

Crockpot Corn Chowder

1/2# diced bacon-fried crisp/drained
1 large stalk celery-diced and sauted
3 or 4 green onions, snipped (OR)
1/4 cup finely diced onion
1 large bag frozen corn
1 can Cream of Corn
2 cups milk (or more to taste)
Put everything in crockpot on high
for at 3 to 4 hours
Lower to LOW setting
and cook 1 or 2 more hours.

salt & pepper to taste
 PS-DON'T eat the candy corn until
your chowder is gone.

I love soup too! And you had me at the shot of the bacon - yum! I'm going to try this one!

Good Morning Nana! I was going to eat Fiber-One for breakfast but this looks much better. Or maybe I'll just add some of that bacon to my ceral and call it a day.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This looks like something I must make, we area soup loving family and any kind of chowder is always a hit and it seems so easy, a double plus! Thanks.

There's nothing better on cold days than a pot of soup... and one pot meals are my favorite way to cook.:):) I will try this, although I have never had corn chowder. Smiles friend, Susie

Hi Diana,

Thanks for visiting my blog today.

Your recipe sounds delicious and I would love to try it,
I'm always looking for crockpot (or as we call them in Ireland slow cooker) recipes.

I haven't heard of "cream style corn" cans before so might have to substitute something else, hmmmm....

Making me hungry as I type!

I hope that you are having a lovely Sunday and that your weather is good,
we have sunshine today and it is lovely to have a blue sky for a change.

Take care and I will visit again.
I'm off to read more now!

I just love corn chowder and have never made it. Can you believe it? Well, I am going to try your recipe (remember, I used your recipe for chocolate gravy and Mr. Sweet's eyes rolled so far back in his head and I thought I had died and gone to Heaven). I KNOW your recipes are good. :))
