I have made this a few times now and it is always great - I also sub'd the cream of Potato for the cream of Mushroom soup also added bit more bacon(cooked till crisp) and added can of whole kernel corn w/ the can of creamed corn. This is an easy BIG HIT in my house - I serve w/ 'Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread" from allrecipes...reeeeeeally good!! Read More

This recipe has potential but even after cooking it for 35 minutes the potatoes were still cruncy and I cut them into small chunks. Next time I guess I'll have to cut them smaller if i decide to try this recipe again. Also the milk scalded but that's my own fault I guess. Read More

Followed other reviewer's advice -- used cream of potato soup and added 1 cup frozen corn. I omitted bacon cooked onions in olive oil. GREAT taste -- an instant family favorite! This is far far better than any other corn chowder I've ever had -- will definitely make it frequently especially over the long cold Maine winter! Read More

This chowder was really good. It was quick and east to make. My only mistake was adding to much salt. Next time I'll taste it as I go along and season it accordingly. Other than that it was great. Read More

This is a really good tasting corn chowder. I made like the recipe but did add a can of whole kernel corn and a finely chopped carrot. My husband who really is not a fan of corn chowder really enjoyed this basic recipe.I will make again and again Thanks for the recipe. Read More

This was such a simple recipe and my husband loved it! That's saying a TON because he is very picky! I followed the recipe exactly and it was even better the next day! This will be my new corn chowder recipe! Update 12/22/08 Made this again and it was still tasty although I think I would wait to put the bacon in until right before serving. It was soggy! Read More

Delicious!! Even my 3 year old loved it. I did not add any salt as I figured there was enough from the can of mushroom soup and bacon. Read More
