Bacon Potato Chowder
There is nothing like a hot bowl of soup waiting for you at the end of a cold winter day. When the kids see the potatoes boiling and smell the bacon cooking they get excited because they know we're making this Bacon Potato Chowder for dinner. And everybody's happy! Serve this thick, hearty chowder in a homemade soup bowl and you will have a crowd pleaser for sure! I use this recipe for my bread dough. One batch makes 4-5 soup bowls, depending on their size. You won't mind those cold winter nights so much when you have this guy keeping you company.
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
3-4 red potatoes, cubed and boiled until slightly soft
1 cup sour cream
1/2 TBS dry onion
1 1/2 cup milk
1 can cream chicken soup
1/2 cup shredded cheese
8 oz whole kernel corn, drained
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp paprika
Combine all ingredients in a pot. Stir together. Simmer on medium heat until heated through. stirring occasionally. Serve hot.
