    Default Corn Chowder

    Ingredients:

    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 stalk of celery, chopped up very small
    a couple pieces of cooked bacon, chopped up small (optional, adds color and flavor)
    2 Tbsp butter or margarine or grease or oil
    1 Tbsp flour
    2 cups of milk (make it from dry milk: it's cheaper and no one has to know)
    2 bags of frozen corn (10 oz each)
    salt and pepper to taste


    Saute the onion in the butter. Add the flour and make a nice paste. Slowly add the milk and stir the whole time, letting the mixture form a thin gravy of sorts. Add the corn, bacon (if using), salt and pepper to taste. Let the chowder heat over for 15 - 20 minutes. Then, puree half of it, reheat, and serve.

    Paired with some crackers or a sandwich, this is quite filling, and dirt cheap. The corn costs almost $2 total, but the rest of the ingredients are pennies a piece.

    This is one dish that I do make, it's good and really doesn't cost much at all to make.

    Corn chowder is one of my favorite things to make to use any leftover corn. This is a staple to make for me...I just add leftover mashed taters for my recipe.
    I love chowders...giggle...

    We LOVE this chowder. I use left over ham in mine usually. Tastes great and makes a good lunch or pared with a grilled sandwich for dinner.
