Very near Meatless Corn Chowder

My all time favorite soup is Corn Chowder. My grandmother made it for us, Mum made it and of course now we make it. 😀

The recipe we have is very basic and has probably lost some ingredients on the way…

And of course to make it meatless….omit bacon 😀


Corn Chowder

6 slices of bacon
1 chopped onion
1 can of mushroom soup
1 can of creamed corn
approximately 2 soup cans of milk sometimes more, sometimes less…:D (usually about 3 – 4 cups)

Cook chopped up bacon then cook the onion until golden, gradually add corn, cream of mushroom soup and milk.  Simmer on low for  15 minutes.


ta da that’s it! Best soup ever!!! 😀 😀

I did find fancier version..
