Martha's Chowder Recipe

The boys love broccoli and you know Caden's love of corn so I was on the Google search for the perfect recipe. That and I saw the challenger on Iron Chef do a corn chowder. I found this Martha Stewart recipe that worked perfect with a few of my tweaks.


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.
ALEXIS NOTES: Thank you Ms. Amy I'm on a turkey bacon kick so this I switched out with the turkey bacon. I only had red potatoes on hand so I used two of them. I used the whole wheat flour and I didn't have frozen so I used canned corn.

Cole loved it he ate THREE bowls, Caden and Rick turned their noses up at it. More for me and Cole :). NO CLUE WHY IT KEEPS UNDERLINING ... UGH

  7. mmmmm...bacon. I would love it. Brian would order pizza if I ever made it though...he has a deep dislike for broccoli.
    Major bummer on the should have heard Jacob...he has started to get an imagination..."first 'Lexis should take off the tire, then carry it on top of her head, then take it to the tire station, and put it in the tire station and fix it!' in a tone that said "come on people how dumb are you? It's and easy fix!"
