Quick and Easy Comfort Food

Money Saving Ideas

While this chowder was made with fresh ingredients today, you can certainly substitute canned corn, carrots, and potatoes. I always use what I have at home so don’t be afraid to do the same. For instance, if I didn’t have the fresh carrots, but I had canned carrots, I would add the whole can of carrots. The same for the potatoes. Sometimes, I have celery that has been in the refrigerator a while and before it goes bad, I dice it up and freeze it in 1 cup portions. This also works great in soups and chowders like this.

Delicious Chowder

A thick creamy and delicious chowder filled with bacon, corn, and potatoes for a flavorful combination of comfort goodness. Oh yeah!!! and cheese too. Seems at our house, anything with cheese is automatically good. Must be the dairy farmers in us coming out.

Nueske’s Bacon

Many fancy restaurants use Nueske’s Bacon. We are lucky enough to have their world headquarters just 15 minutes from our house. Therefore, when we make bacon, it is often Nueske’s Bacon. That is the bacon we used in this recipe. Yum! If you would like to get some for yourself, here is a link to the bacon. Of course, we purchase 10 pounds at a time when we go to the store. The inside of the store just smells so good too. If you ever get to Wittenberg, Wisconsin, you should stop in the headquarters and shop their store.
