"This comforting, cheesy soup is perfect for a cold winter's night-and it doesn't have to simmer for hours," jots Darlene Drane from Fayette, Missouri. "The creamed corn adds a nice touch of sweetness. My family enjoys it with dill pickle spears and crusty fresh-from-the-oven bread."

Ingredients

  • 6 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup butter, cubed
  • 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces each) cream-style corn
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 3 cups milk
  • 8 ounces Colby cheese, cubed

Directions

  1. Place potatoes in a Dutch oven or large soup kettle; sprinkle with salt and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer until potatoes are tender.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Stir in corn and bacon; heat through. Drain potatoes. Add milk; heat through. Stir in corn mixture and cheese. Serve immediately.
