Warm Corn Chowder on a cool fall day.

So, it was rather cool out today and dreary.   Gloomy weather in September always makes me want to bake. 

What better food can there be to warm you from the inside out than corn chowder?  Here’s my recipe, from my head, so tweak away and make it your own.

3 cans of creamed corn

2 cans of milk(fill your cream corn cans to measure)

diced bacon and onion sauted and added to the rest

cubed red potatoes, boiled and with skin on(my preference)

– put it all in crock pot on high for 2 hours, stir a couple times

– add pepper, salt and Epicure’s Cheddar Jalepeno Dip mix(about 1.5 tsp) for extra kick

When you serve, put some sour cream out for those guests who need to cool off the heat from the seasoning or just the temperature.  It’s a really yummy addition to the flavour!

 

 

Oh the smell is so heavenly!

 

 

 

Everything into the crock, walk away and let it simmer!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Serve with some scones:

2 cups flour

1/2 cup sugar

3 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

cut in 1/2 cup butter or margerine(make sure it’s cold)

add 1` egg beaten and 2/3 c cold milk

form into two round patties on a baking sheet and then brush on milk and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake at 425*F for approx. 12 minutes or until nicely browned.

Cut into 6 wedges each and serve warm with butter!

 

 

The smell!! The taste!!

Does it get any better than this?

 

Happy Fall to you!
