I Just Made the Yummiest Soup!

I've made a similar soup before and thought I'd just change it up a little. I had no idea it would be this good. I'm glad I made a double recipe!! Leftovers, mmmmmmmm ...

Potato-Bacon Chowder
serves 4-6

4 strips thick-sliced bacon
1 medium onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 small carrot, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
3 T flour
3 c chicken broth
2 medium potatoes, diced
¾ c corn
¼ t thyme
1/8 t oregano
¼ t salt
1/8 t pepper
  1. Fry bacon until crisp. Drain and crumble, reserving 1 T grease.
  2. Place onion, celery, and carrot in a saucepan with the reserved bacon grease. Heat at medium-high, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent.
  3. Add garlic and cook for one minute more.
  4. Stir in flour until fully absorbed, then add chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
  5. Add potatoes, corn, crumbled bacon, and spices. Reduce heat to medium.
  6. Simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
  7. Eat with a great big smile on your face!


  1. What is it about potato soup? SOoo good!

  2. Especially in the winter. We're getting snow here today. If I had the ingredients in the house, this would definitely be on the menu today!
