This delicious soup starts off with a little bit of bacon.

Note: If you make this recipe with turkey (or beef) bacon to be biblically clean like I now do, you may need to add additional oil/fat as alternative bacons are very lean. See this recipe at Wholesome Skillet: How to Make Crispy Turkey Bacon

For this soup, I used russet potatoes. They’re a starchy potato and that starch helps give this soup that creamy texture.

Ingredients
  

  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1/2 c diced red onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 3 russet potatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 2 c milk
  • 2 1/2 c frozen whole kernel corn
  • 2 c chicken broth, divided
  • 1 Tb corn starch

Instructions
 

  • To begin, saute the diced bacon in your Dutch oven. When it is nice and crispy, use a slotted spoon to scoop it out onto a plate lined with paper towels. Set it aside for now.
  • While the bacon cooks, dice your onion and celery. Peel your potatoes and cut them into about 3/4 inch cubes.
  • When the bacon is done, add the onion & celery to the drippings. Cook them over medium heat until they are just tender, about 2 minutes
  • Add in the potatoes, salt, pepper, thyme, milk, corn, and 1 1/2 cup of the chicken broth. Stir it all together and bring it to a boil over medium high heat.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low, cover, and let it gently cook until the potatoes are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Give it an occasional stir.
  • In a small dish, whisk the corn starch & remaining chicken broth together until smooth. Turn the heat up to high and bring the soup back to a boil. Add in the corn starch mixture. Let it cook for about 2 minutes, stirring often.
  • Serve topped with the cooked bacon. Enjoy!

Note: I no longer eat pork, however I am leaving recipes like this one up for those who enjoy it. Many pork recipes can be easily converted to turkey or chicken recipes, with little or even no other changes. Recipes with bacon or sausage can use alternatives like beef or turkey bacon. Many of those recipes are being updated with the changes. Article: Why I Quit Eating Pork

  1. Try adding one or two cans of chopped clams and a bottle of clam juice to the Potato Corn Chowder. You may cut back on the chicken stock, if you like, but I enjoy it being a little thinner.
