Broccoli Chowder w/ Corn & Bacon (Everyday Food)

Submitted by: LITTLEFULLER


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    2 cans (14.5 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1 large baking potato, peeled and diced
    1 head broccoli (about 1 pound), cut into bite-size florets, stalks peeled and thinly sliced
    1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 cup whole milk
    Coarse salt and ground pepper

Directions

1) In a large pot, cook bacon over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Increase heat to medium. Cook onion, stirring, until it begins to soften, 6 to 8 minutes.
2) Add flour; cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Add broth and potato; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cook until potato is tender, about 10 minutes. Add broccoli, corn, thyme, and milk. Cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with bacon.

  • I made this with a frozen bag of mixed veggies containing broccoli, corn and red peppers because i didnt have fresh broccoli and i used a can of diced whole potatoes because i didnt have the baking potato and it was really really good. I highly recommend you try this recipe. - 1/27/09
