  1. Make this in a dutch oven.
  2. Fry bacon in the dutch oven until almost crisp. (Recipe calls for 3 slices of bacon but I use way more than that.) Take bacon out and cut it up.
  3. Add onion & potato to the dutch oven and saute lightly (do not brown). Stir in the creamed corn, the sugar, and the bacon.
  4. Add boiling water and cook on top of stove over low heat for 30-35 minutes, stirring occasionally. (Alternatively, cover and bake in the oven for 45 minutes at 350.).
  5. After cooking, add milk and continue to cook until very hot. (Original recipe calls for 2 egg yolks to be tempered in and 1 T of butter to add at the end, but I don't like either of those.).
  6. Garnish with chopped chives or parsley.

This was very tasty. But, I thought a little to thin. I like a thick chowder. Next time I will add a little flour to thicken after step 3.
