Bacon Corn Chowder

With these very chilly spring days we are having, I thought soup would taste good.  This is a hearty, creamy soup that is so easy to make.  My daughter thought it was the best I have ever made!

This is a slow cooker recipe, but I just made mine on the stove on low heat until potatoes were done.

  • 1 lb. bacon, chopped
  • 4 cups peeled and diced potatoes
  • 2 c. chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 (10 3.4-oz.) cans cream of chicken soup
  • 2 (15 1/4_oz) cans corn, drained
  • 16-oz. container sour cream
  • 2 1/2 cups milk

In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook bacon for 5 minutes; drain off fat.  Add potatoes, onion and water to skillet.  Cook for 15 to 20 minutes until tender, stirring occasionally.  Transfer mixture to a slow cooker, if using.  (I didn’t).  Combine remaining ingredients; add to slow cooker and stir to blend.  Cover and cook on low setting for 2 hours.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.

Mom’s Breakfast Pizza

This recipe came from my Mom.  It was published in a church cookbook many years ago.  It is so easy to make and so easy to eat.  Yum!

I thought my sausage was mild, but undoubtly not.  It was a bit hot for my taste, so next time I will be sure to use mild sausage.  Or, maybe I’ll try bacon or ham next time.

  • 1 lb. pork sausage
  • 1 pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls
  • 1 cup frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper, opt.
  • 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese

In skillet brown sausage.  Separate crescent rolls in triangles on pizza pan.  Press edges together.  Spoon sausage over crust.  Then hash browns.  Add cheddar cheese.  Beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper.  Pour on crust.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes.

Serves 8.
