Loaded Cheesy, Bacon, Corn, and Potato Chowder

Thank you so much for all the fantastic soups which I will make in the near future but I am thinking that a lot of them I will make “dry” and not in a soup but in a Bubble ‘n Squeak, scrambled kind of casserole dish as well.


The chowder is easy, ready in about 45 minutes, and the ultimate comfort food. The smaller you dice the vegetables, the faster it’ll be ready. I recommend 1/4-inch dice. It’s loaded with savory bacon, juicy corn, tender potatoes, sweet Vidalia onions, carrots, and celery which all add texture and flavor. The chowder is thick, creamy, rich, hearty, and wonderfully cheesy. Grate your own cheese because pre-grated convenience bags of cheese are resistant to melting. And bacon just makes everything better.

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon pepper, or to taste
  • pinch cayenne pepper, optional and to taste
  • 2 cups corn (I used frozen and added it straight from the freezer)
