Cheesy Corn, Bacon & Potato Chowder

I've been making this hearty soup for years.
This Cheesy Corn, Bacon & Potato Chowder has all your cozy favorites!

There are a lot of memes going around the internet joking that once September hits we are all wearing sweaters (and sweating) and declaring it "soup weather" even when it's still 80 degrees outside. It's all true!

I am one of those people.

Bring on all the pumpkin spice and Fall jackets and cozy comfort foods. It is my favorite season and has been my whole life. I love the crispy mornings when I'm out walking our dog, I love the sunsets and I love finally grabbing those leggings I've been itching to wear all Summer long.

I also love soup!

All kinds. Broth based ones, creamy ones and hearty ones. There is nothing I like making more during the Fall and Winter than a good soup. Selfishly because it will often feed us for two meals (believe it or not, I do get tired of cooking at times). Soup makes a great easy lunch to reheat and often if we are eating again for dinner on a second night, I'll add in a new side like my Rosemary Garlic Focaccia Bread.

Over the years I have found I have a few FAN FAVORITE soups!

This Cheesy Corn, Bacon & Potato Chowder is so darn yummy. Honestly, it comes together in well under and hour and often I'll just keep it on warm all afternoon on the stove (stirring every once and awhile) leaving it there till dinner is ready. The consistency stays perfect until we are ready to eat.

I've made some revisions over the years (using cubed hash browns for ease is one), also feel free to grab a can of corn from your pantry if you don't have fresh sweet corn on hand. This soup is flexible!

Ham can also be subbed for the bacon - whatever works for your family.

Look at how pretty she is!

Do you ever entertain with soup? I think it is a forgotten art. If you are having guests over during the months where it's chilly out (or down right cold) - serve soup!

Maybe make a batch of this one, then a complete opposite soup (like my Lasagna Soup) and serve family style. Always, always have fresh bread on hand or a fun salad. 

I promise people will not be disappointed.

Kids love this one (bacon, cheese, potatoes) and Moms love this one because it fills their bellies. After you make take a moment and come back here and leave a star rating review below. Tell your friends! I hope you love this one as much as I do.
