Gather the ingredients to make this easy corn chowder recipe.
5 slices of bacon
1 medium onion - sliced and separated into rings
2 medium potatoes - diced
½ cup of water
1 can creamed-corn, 14.75 ounce can
2 cups milk
1 tsp. salt
dash of pepper
butter or margarine
Place the bacon in a three-quart saucepan, and cook it until it is crisp. (I use a large saucepan so I will only have one pan to wash. Cut the bacon slices in half so they will fit better in the saucepan.) Remove the bacon from the pan, drain on paper towels, crumble, and set aside. Reserve three tablespoons of bacon drippings in the saucepan.
Add onion slices to the saucepan, and cook until lightly browned.
Add diced potatoes and water to the onions in the pan. Cook over medium heat until the potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
Add the creamed-corn, milk, salt, and pepper; cook until heated through. While this is heating, stir often.
Serve topped with the crumbled bacon and a pat of butter. Another way to serve this easy corn chowder recipe is in bread bowls.
