Corn Chowder

One afternoon, a while back, I had no idea what to cook for supper. Imagine that. So, I got on Pinterest. Imagine that. I knew the stuff I had in my pantry, and I found a recipe that would work with it. I ended up modifying a recipe to suit my pantry's needs, and it turned out awesome.

Corn Chowder. If you have ever been to the Old Mill in Pigeon Forge, TN, it tasted just like that. I amazed myself. I made a mental note to take pictures and blog the recipe before I forgot what I did. And I forgot. Then I remembered. Then I lost the original recipe. Then I found it. Now here's my version!

Corn Chowder

1 (12oz) can whole kernel corn
1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
2 potatoes, peeled and diced
Few pieces onion, diced
1/4 cup butter
2 cups milk
2 beef bullion cubes
2 cups water
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Sprinkle of parsley

Combine all ingredients in pot. Cook until potatoes are tender.

*I know some of this sounds weird, like why canned and frozen corn? Beef cubes? But, it's exactly what I used that night, and it tasted exactly like the Old Mill Restaurant's Corn Chowder. I'm afraid to change anything!

 It's really yummy with some homemade sourdough bread!


  1. Steph,


    Now I want corn chowder and to pretend I'm in Tennessee.

    Wanna' come to Alberta?? I will make you poutine and back bacon and you can pretend you are in a snow covered landscape (not even pretend, it can truly happen.)

    1. I'm pretty sure I could only visit Alberta in the middle of summer. It would be like Tinkerbell crossing into the Winter Woods. Do yall watch Disney as much as us? haha.
