Prep:

50 Min

Cook:

2 Hr 45 Min

Method:

Stove Top

Ingredients

1/2 pkg
bacon
1-2 medium
onions
5-6 medium
potatos
1/2 pkg
(lge)frozen niblets corn
1 can(s)
(lge) canned cream corn
1 can(s)
evaporated milk
1 can(s)
water
? Tbsp
instant mashed potatoes
1 Tbsp
butter
dash(es)
generous amounts salt & pepper
1 c
water

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut up bacon into small pieces (say abt 1/2"x 1/2" or so) and fry in lge pot (Dutch oven size---should be right full when all is done)
*****Do Not Drain*****
2
Dice onion and add to bacon. Fry till approx. transparent or less.
3
Cube and cook potatoes in separate pot till done. Keep water, and add to onion/bacon mix.
4
In pot you did your potatoes in, combine can of evaporated milk (cream) and 1 equal can of water. Scald. Add to bacon/onion/potatoes.
5
Add frozen and canned corn and extra cup of water if necessary (likely will be).
6
While stirring, add instant mashed potato flakes to thicken to Chowder consistency, (or your desired thickness but I wouldn't go too thick at this point)
7
Add generous amount of pepper and salt (I don't like a lot of salt or pepper normally but it really works in here)
8
Add approx. 1 Tablespoon or so of Butter.
9
Pot should be nice and full. I like to let it simmer approx. 1-2 hours stirring frequently or if you have a stove element wire thing (you can get them at a Dollar store) to keep your pot off the direct heat then you don't have to watch it "as" closely.
