Yum! A thick and hearty dinner soup. Serve with hot bread.


  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1 medium onions
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 7 Tbsp flour
  • 6-7 medium red potatoes, diced medium chunky
  • 4-5 ears fresh corn on the cob
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup cream


Chop bacon and fry in soup pot til almost crisp. Add onion, celery and cook 3-4 minutes til translucent, add garlic and stir 1 minute. Add flour and stir 1-2 minutes. Add corn(sliced off cob), potatoes and barely cover with chicken broth. Simmer for 10 minutes. Add milk, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes and simmer til bubbly. Check to see that potatoes are tender. Add cream and stir. If too thick add more milk. Sprinkle in thyme. Adjust salt, pepper or red pepper flakes to taste.  To serve top with cheese and chopped raw onion. Crisp bacon sprinkled on top adds even more yum.

Serves 8.
