How To Make potato chowder supreme

  • Frozen package of bacon.
    Place bacon in freezer (SECRET TIP!) before preparing potatoes.
  • Cubed potatoes in a pot of water to boil.
    In a soup pot, place cubed potatoes in cold water. Add salt. Cover and bring to boil. Remove lid and continue cooking potatoes until almost thoroughly cooked (will finish cooking upon addition of final ingredients).
  • Chopped bacon in a skillet.
    Retrieve bacon from the freezer and cut it into 1" or 1/2" small pieces. This process allows for ease of cutting slippery bacon. Pan fry, separating bacon pieces.
  • Onion added to the bacon.
    Add chopped onion to bacon when bacon is almost done so that onion is fried to a translucent color.
  • Flour sprinkled over the bacon.
    When bacon and onion are done, sprinkle flour over them. Cook flour into bacon grease for 3 minutes. This will thicken the soup later. Turn off heat and set aside until potatoes are done cooking.
  • Some of the water drained from the potatoes.
    When potatoes are done, drain off some water allowing enough water to to cover potatoes to remain in pot.
  • Soup, milk, parsley, and corn in a bowl.
    In a separate bowl, mix soup, milk, parsley, and corn.
  • Soup mixture poured into the pot with the potatoes.
    Add soup mixture to the pot with potatoes.
  • Bacon and onions added to the potatoes.
    Add bacon and onion mixture to the potatoes.
  • Butter added to the pot.
    Add butter to the soup. Stir gently as to not break up potatoes.
  • Soup simmering on the stove.
    Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 min. Enjoy!
