"EVERYONE in my wife's family is a corn lover, so her mom came up with this wonderful recipe to satisfy their appetites. With the bacon, sausage and potatoes, it's hearty enough to be a one-pot meal, but it's also really good with the chicken."

MY REVIEW

"Great soup. Used 3 ears of fresh sweet corn. ( cooked ) I had no bacon so I saut?ed the veggies in some reserved drippings from the sausage. I also thickened mine up with a small amount of corn starch.. I had no creamed corn on hand but my ears of corn rendered more than 2 cups. Very pleasing and it is chunky * Janie

I liked the addition of the Dill. Though I did use less."

"I made this Corn Chowder tonight and we found it to be very good ! We all agreed that this was worth having again ! I did not use the dill weed because I had none . I did add more whole milk to make it more soupy as I was afraid that I would burn it . I served it with ritz crackers ."

"I doubled this recipe and used less dill weed. I also added bacon because my family loves bacon, and subscribe to the "you can never have too much" theory. :)"
