Dinner On the Super Cheap...Corn and Potato Chowder
By Kellyand3kids on November 22, 2011
This is an easy dinner I came up with when I was "cleaning out" my pantry, freezer and fridge. The family loved it and so I added it to our dinner rotation. In a sauce pot caramelize 1 chopped onion and 2 stalks of diced celery in 2T. butter. Bacon, sausage or pancetta can be added and browned or you can keep it vegetarian. To this add 4-6 potatoes cubed into bite size pieces and just cover with water or chicken broth. Add 2 bay leaves and seasoning. Avoid salt, it is just absorbed by the potato and will be needed again at the end. Bring to a boil and then simmer until potatoes are tender. When the potatoes are tender add 1 bag frozen corn (1 can of canned will work as well). When heated through add half and half until desired thickness. Garnish with cheddar cheese or serve with cheddar biscuits.
