Old-Fashioned Corn Chowder

serves 6

Cooking Time: 40 min

What You'll Need:
6 slices bacon
1 cup chopped onion
4 red potatoes, cubed
1 cup water
2 (14.75-ounce) cans cream-style corn
3 cups half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What To Do:
1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon to a paper towel-lined plate, let cool, then crumble and set aside.

2. Over medium heat, cook onion in bacon drippings 3 to 4 minutes, or until tender, stirring constantly. Add potatoes and water; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 18 to 20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork-tender.

3. Stir remaining ingredients into potato mixture; cook until thoroughly heated, stirring often. Ladle into bowls, sprinkle with bacon, and serve immediately.

We like to serve this with a side of our homemade cornbread.
