Cheddar Corn Chowder -- Barefoot Bloggers


It's time for Barefoot Bloggers. The first Ina recipe for October is Cheddar Corn Chowder, picked for us to try by Jill of My Next Life, thank you Jill!

I made a few modifications to the original recipe, mainly leaving out the bacon and swapping chicken stock out for vegetable stock to make a meat-free version of the soup. Also after the potatoes had cooked I used a potato masher and smooshed down into the soup pot a few times to add some thickness to the soup. Everything turned out perfectly and was a great dinner that even my picky husband enjoyed -- although he really missed the bacon! This was such a creamy and delicious chowder, just perfect for a chilly fall night.

Great changes to lighten up the soup - maybe your hubby can fry up a weekly batch of bacon bits and store them in the fridge for sprinkling!

No bacon?!?!

This looks great, even if it doesn't have any bacon.

I used my emulsion blender b/f adding the corn, great and smooth. I would have missed the bacon and I dont love bacon.

I love bacon so there was no way I was leaving it out. But great job making it vegetarian. Yours looks so smooth and creamy I could lick my monitor!
