    Recipe Introduction

    A lighter, creamy and tasty ham and potato corn chowder that is pure comfort in a bowl!

    List of Ingredients

    3 tablespoons oil or butter
    1 onion, diced
    2 carrots, diced
    2 stalks celery, diced
    2 cloves garlic, chopped
    1 teaspoon thyme, chopped
    * 1/4 cup flour
    2 cups ham broth or chicken broth
    2 cups milk
    1 1/2 pounds potatoes, diced small and optionally peeled
    8 ounces ham, diced
    1 cup corn
    salt and pepper to taste


    Heat the oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat, add the onions, carrots and celery and cook until tender, about 8-10 minutes.
    Mix in the garlic, thyme and flour and cook until the flour is lightly browned, about 2-3 minutes.
    Slowly stir in the broth, deglazing the pan as you go, add the milk and potatoes, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 10-12 minutes.
    Add the ham and corn, cook until heated and season with salt and pepper.

    Option: Start by cooking 4 strips of bacon, crumbling and setting aside before using the bacon grease to cook the veggies instead of the oil and then use the crumbled bacon as garnish.
    Option: Omit the carrots and celery.
    Option: Replace the potato with cauliflower.
    Option: Fry the ham until slightly crispy on the outside before adding it to the soup.

    My notes: I didn't have any thyme, or celery so I just did ham, potatoes, and corn and onions. You can add carrots, but I didn't. In place of the flour I used the same amount of Pioneer Pepper Gravy mix.

    Made for our Bingo luncheon..everyone enjoyed it.
