Looking for comfort food?  Winter warm up recipes?  Delicious soup?

I’m loving this recipe!  So many great flavors and textures give your mouth a happy treat!

When the weather changes, I get soup ready.  I love all types of soup.  It really doesn’t matter to me.  I like cold soup, hot soup, thick soup (Chowders and chili too) I like thin soups.  Ok- I’ll stop because I’m starting to sound like Bubba from Forest Gump!  (Shrimp soup lol) The point is…I like soup!

I’ve been wanting to make Corn Chowder for months.  I meant to do it during Corn season but- time got away from me.  Here I am in November wanting soup.  Good news is I can change the “want” into a “have” fairly quickly!

Packed full of delicious bacon and veggies this soup is sure to please!

Creamy Bacon Corn Chowder is hearty enough to eat as an entree but is also a delicious side dish to your favorite protein.  

We liked this soup so much I decided it had to bea soup option for Christmas dinner along with my Roasted Poblano Cheddar Soup With Ham 

Roasted Poblano and Cheddar Soup

When I make big batches of soup I like to freeze about half of the recipe.  My favorite way to freeze soup is to pour the soup into ice cube trays.  Pop the soup filled trays into the freezer until frozen.  Once frozen, remove the “soup cubes” from the ice cube trays and place in a freezer bag until I’m ready to use.  I have had great luck with this method for a few reasons.  First, the soup freezes well for several months.  I have frozen soup in August and served it in December and it was just as delicious as the day I made it.  Second, in cube form it is easy to pull out the perfect portion.  If you want a cup of soup as a side you can just pull out 3-4 cubes.  Last of all, the cubes reheat easily.  Just plop them into a pot and turn on low heat and the work is done!  Allow the soup to melt slowly and then you can turn up the heat before serving.

I’m looking forward to making Creamy Bacon Corn Chowder for years to come.

  1. Im all over warming chowders and soups at the moment (wince its below freezing here in england!) so this recipe couldnt have come at a more appropriate time! Thanks for sharing Michelle!

  2. This soup looks delicious! I just love the bacon in with the corn and I’m with you, I can eat soup 12 months a year. I never used ice cube trays for soup but they work great for freezing herbs. Great idea!

  3. Good Evening Michelle, I love this type of soup when the wintery weather arrives as it is really heartwarming.
    I will certainly be trying your recipe, because my husband loves bacon and he also loves sweetcorn….so your soup scores a perfect 10.
    Best Wishes to you.

  4. This looks so good – pinning! Love your suggestion for freezing soup too – that’s always such a conundrum, having a casserole dish too big to freeze and have thaw all at once later, or using up all the small pyrex bowls with one batch. Thanks! Saw your feature at DIDI – well deserved!
