Bacon Potato Chowder

It is the end of February and
spring is just around the corner.
But right now we want warm, hearty, comfort food.
Bacon Potato Chowder hits the spot 
with a thick slice of bread fresh from the oven. 

 
Smokey bacon, chunky potatoes, and onions 
in a creamy mixture of milk, sour cream,
and cream of chicken soup.

Simple to make.

Brown your bacon.

While that is cooking, dice onions and potatoes.

Remove bacon and cook onions and potatoes
 in bacon grease until tender.
Drain if necessary. 

Add milk, sour cream and 
a can of cream of chicken soup.
Cook for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Add your bacon back into the chowder.

Chop some green onions 
and grate some cheddar cheese
 for delicious, colorful toppings.

Scoop up a big bowl of potato chowder like this.
 

Then top with
 green onions & cheddar cheese 
and have this.


Yum...a big bowl of love.

  1. It turned out amazing. I paired it with cheddar biscuits, there were no leftovers in sight.
