It's Corn! Or I Mean Corn Chowder!

Sweater Weather is almost here which means Soup Season is following close behind.  

So Here's one of my Faves:

Corn Chowder

PREP TIME 15 mins COOK TIME 30 mins TOTAL TIME 45 mins 


  • 5 strips thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 ears corn
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 cups russet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • salt & black pepper
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 cup whole milk or heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • cups cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives


  1. In a large pot over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon and reserve for topping. If there is an excess amount of bacon grease, remove all but 1 tablespoon of grease.
  2. To the pot, add the butter, onion, and cook another 5 minutes or until fragrant. Add the corn, garlic, thyme, paprika, and a big pinch of red pepper flakes. Cook another 2 minutes. Add the potatoes and broth. Cover, and bring the soup to a boil, simmer 10-15 minutes, until the potato is soft.
  3. Transfer 1/2 of the chowder to a blender and blend until mostly smooth. Return to the pot. Stir in the cream, honey, and both cheeses, and cook 5 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the chowder thickens slightly. Stir in the chives and remove from the heat.
  4. Ladle the chowder into bowls and top with bacon, additional cheese, and any fresh herbs you love most. I use basil, thyme and oregano.
  5. Enjoy!
