Corn Chowda with Bacon
Chock full of sweet, crunchy corn and topped with crispy, crumbled bacon, this bowl of goodness makes great use of the abundant fresh corn found at this time of year! I have served this soup with Oyster crackers or warm Cornbread or even a Hot Fresh Roll and butter. They’re all good.
