Corn and Bacon Soup 001

With winter just around the corner, it’s time to share another soup recipe. Corn and Bacon Soup is a family favourite because it’s delicious and full of flavour. I usually serve this with a beautiful crusty Onion and Parmesan Cob from Woolworths … absolutely yummy and fills hungry tummies!

Corn and Bacon Soup …

Method …
  1. Combine creamed corn and chicken stock in a large pot and heat gently.
  2. Melt butter in a separate pan and cook capsicum, celery and bacon until cooked, stirring frequently. Add shallots and cook for a further minute.
  3. Puree capsicum, celery, bacon and shallots in a blender.

  5. Chop extra bacon rasher and cook in a pan until crispy.
  6. Serve soup into individual bowls and garnish with extra shallots and crispy bacon.

Clever Tricks, Tips and Hints:

For convenience, I use the Continental ready-made chicken stock as it’s quick and easy and the flavour is quite good.

If you need to stretch the soup a bit further you can add ¾ cup of milk or, if you would prefer a creamier texture, ¾ cup of cream works well also.

  1. Great recipe! I make a version of sweet corn soup too but it’s a lot more simple with just canned creamed corn and stock. Didn’t think of using bacon as a base to add some flavour… will definitely do that next time. I also like to beat up an egg and drizzle it in too
