BB: Cheddar Corn Chowder
October's first Barefoot Blogger challenge was a lovely soup, Cheddar Corn Chowder. This is similar to a long-standing recipe I have that includes a few more vegetables and tuna.
For a light and quick lunch or dinner, this chowder is ideal. Although, for the life of me, I can't understand why it requires bacon fat, olive oil, and butter! Rendering the bacon at the beginning of the recipe certainly provides enough fat for the flour and for the taste.
I also quartered the recipe for the two of us -- it makes a whole bunch of soup, otherwise.
My daughter's favorite part was the bacon.
She did like the soup as well, but she consumed the leftover bacon.
Thanks to Jill of My Next Life for a nice change from all the sweet stuff. Stop by the Barefoot Blogger site to see all the other renditions.
