I can't get enough of this delicious soup. The bacon and cream-style corn make it extra-special.

Super flavors! The bacon gives a bit of saltiness and then the creamed corn adds a great sweetness! I made this just as written and think it's great as it is. I'll make this again. Thanx ev!

i followed your recipe using fresh thyme, it was very quick and easy. i do prefer fresh clams to canned and fresh or frozen corn. this reminded me of something my mom used to make when we were very young, without the clams.
