Corn Chowder

There is nothing that I enjoy more than a bowl of corn chowder in the winter when a cold is flirting with my immune system. My kids grew up on this for comfort food and it was the first recipe that E asked for when he moved away and got married. He and Annie have amended it a bit by adding organic chicken sausage.

Here's my recipe.

Corn Chowder
1/2 pound bacon, diced
1 medium onion, chopped
2 Tbsp. flour
4 cups milk
2 cans of creamed style corn
1 can of whole kernel corn
2 cans of sliced potatoes
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Fry bacon until crisp; removed and drain. Pour all but 3 tbsp. of drippings from saucepan. Add onion to drippings in pan; cook and stir until onion is tender. Remove from heat and blend in flour. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is bubbly. Remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in potatoes, corn salt and pepper; heat through. Stir in bacon.
