Fried Corn Chowder
3T. butter, divided
2 c. fresh or frozen corn
2 T. dried, minced onion
2 c. potatoes, peeled and finely diced (this was 4 potatoes)
2c. hot water
2 T. all-purpose flour
2 c. milk
1 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
Melt one tablespoon butter in a saucepan over low heat. Add corn; cook, stirring often, until tender.
Meanwhile, melt remaining butter in a separate large saucepan or stockpot. Add onion and cook until lightly golden, stirring often. Add potatoes and hot water. Simmer until potatoes are tender. Drain half of the liquid.
In a bowl, add flour to milk; whisk until no lumps are visible. Add salt and pepper. Stir flour mixture into hot potato mixture; blend well and stir in corn. Simmer until flavors are blended, about 10 minutes.
Serve hot with Beer Bread and bacon bits if desired (unfortunately, we didn't have any bacon.). Makes 6-8 servings.
This chowder was relatively easy to make but my hands were busy so I apologize for the lack of photos during the cooking process.
This was the perfect lunch on a rainy Sunday even if we were slightly depressed since the rain is slowing down the harvest season on our family farm.
