Slow Cooking Thursday (Corn Chowder)

Time to participate again in the slow cooker recipe exchange that Sandra over at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom hosts each week. This one satisfies my craving for warm and hearty soup in the winter and fall months. It's a quick and easy recipe and quite yummy! :)

Corn Chowder

  1. 2 cans (16 oz) whole kernel corn, drained
  2. 3 to 4 medium potatoes, chopped
  3. 1 onion, chopped
  4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  5. pepper to taste
  6. 2 cups chicken broth
  7. 2 cups whole milk or half-and-half
  8. 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  9. bacon bits


  1. Combine first 6 ingredients in slow cooker.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 9 hours.
  3. Puree in a blender or food processor, if desired, then return to pot.
  4. Stir in milk and butter; cover and cook on HIGH about 30 to 60 minutes longer.
  5. Garnish with bacon bits before serving. (optional)

Makes 6-8 servings.

Well, that's all for now. Please visit other Slow Cooker Thursday bloggers, starting with Sandra. Please leave me a comment if you've done one yourself so I can go check it out.

I have made this many times but never thought to do it in the slow cooker! Yea! Also, regarding the food processor or blender: I blend HALF of it, making a wonderful creamy base but leaving half in chunks. It's great that way :-)

Corn Chowder would hit the spot just about right! Love these kinds of recipes. Could live off of soups and chowders! :)

Thank you again for sharing - have a great Friday!
