Broccoli Chowder with Corn and Bacon

Yet another great recipe from Everyday Food that will be made again. I put this recipe on our menu for the week because I was thinking that it was going to cold today, but it turned out to be in the low 70’s. Well, I’ll make it again when the weather cools off even more. Nate loved this chowder even though he was apprehensive about the broccoli. He worked in a store that had a cafe that sold broccoli soup and the smell was a bit too much for him. The broccoli is put in at the end of the recipe so it doesn’t have time to get too smelly! Ohh! How appealing! Nate also loved the bacon in the soup. Anything is better with bacon!


Broccoli Chowder with Corn and Bacon

source: Everyday Food


Serves 4

  • 4 slices bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 large baking potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 head broccoli (about 1 pound), cut into bite-size florets, stalks peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. In a large pot, cook bacon over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Increase heat to medium. Cook onion, stirring, until it begins to soften, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Add flour; cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds. Add broth and potato; bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer; cook until potato is tender, about 10 minutes. Add broccoli, corn, thyme, and milk. Cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with bacon.


  1. That looks really good and comforting. Too bad it’s still up in the 90s here!
