This is the only way I make corn chowder. It doesn't leave that awful skum around the pot like cooking it on the stove does, that you almost have to sandblast off. The bacon gives a wonderful flavour, and the two kinds of corn a nice consistency.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 2-quart microwave safe casserole, place onion in the centre with bacon around the edges.
  2. Cover and cook at 100% power for 3 minutes, until onion is tender, stirring once.
  3. Arrange potatoes on top of bacon and onions.
  4. Cover and cook at 100% power for 6 minutes, stirring twice, until potatoes are tender.
  5. Let stand, still covered, for 3 minutes.
  6. Stir in corn kernels, cream-style corn, and the milk.
  7. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  8. Heat at 100% power for 3-4 minutes, or until hot, stirring occasionally.

Delicious! Exactly what I was looking for. I did add a bit more milk and used onion powder instead of onion (b/c DH doesn't like them, boo!) It was perfect for a chilly Fall night.

Absolutely wonderful! Of course, like most people, we made a few alterations. #1. Cooked in sauce pan on stove top. #2. Added about 1/4 cup chopped celery. #3. Used 1 cup milk, 1 cup heavy cream. #4. Topped with chopped scallions. Definite keeper!!!
