Old Mill Restaurant's Signature Corn Chowder

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by CindiJ

On a trip to Knoxville & Pigeon Forge Tennessee we ate at The Old Mill Restaurant. It's be in operation since 1830 and we had the most amazing Corn Chowder as the start to our meal. I prefer to use a ham base in this soup and the store bought is just as good as the homemade kind. This is a nice soup that tastes like it is more work than it really is.
