Ingredients

  • ½ pound thick sliced bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

  • 2 carrots, diced

  • 4 stalks celery, chopped

  • 1 bay leaf

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons flour

  • 4 cups milk

  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced

  • 1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained

  • 1 pinch paprika (Optional)

Directions

  1. Cook the bacon pieces in a large skillet over medium heat until the fat has rendered, and the bacon is crispy, about 8 minutes. Remove the bacon, leaving the grease in the pan. Stir the carrot, celery, and bay leaf into the bacon grease; cook for 5 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large pot over medium-low heat. Whisk in the flour, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Slowly whisk in the milk, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Once simmering, cook for 5 minutes, whisking frequently. Add the bacon, cooked vegetables, potatoes, and corn. Return to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes more. Use additional milk as needed to to achieve desired consistency. Garnish with paprika to serve.
