DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon and break into small pieces. Set aside.
  • In a heavy saucepan over low heat, saute onion, celery and carrots in 1 T. of oil (or in 1 T. bacon drippings) until they begin to soften. (approx 5 minutes).
  • Add potatoes, salt and water. (You may need to add more water if the potatoes are not completely immersed - just add enough to immerse the potatoes.). Cover and cook gently until potatoes are tender. (approx. 15-20 minutes).
  • Add corn, cream-style corn, milk, butter, and cracker crumbs. Heat to serving temperature without boiling.
  • Stir in bacon pieces.
  • Just before serving, add parsley and a generous grind of white pepper (to taste).
