Helms Bakery Corn Chowder

Recipe by Glassylady

This recipe has been a family favorite for many years. I believe my mother originally found this recipe in a newletter published by Helms Bakery. I usually quadruple this recipe, because as much as everyone loves it, and eats plenty, they love the leftovers even more. I would be in so much trouble if I did not have enough leftovers for at least a couple more meals per person.

Well, I hope you kids pass this down to there kids, as it was delicious. I love evaporated milk in any thing and this hit the spot. We had my FIL for dinner and he went home with what was left in the pot, I didn't mind as I can and will make it again. The crispy bacon bits on top gave it an extra Mmmmm.Thanks for a keeper. Made for PAC spring 2009
