  • 3 slices bacon (finely diced - optional)
  • 1/2 small yellow onion (finely diced, about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 stalks celery (finely diced)
  • 1 14 oz can creamed corn
  • 1 cup milk (2% or greater)
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a heavy large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook the bacon until the fat is mostly rendered and the bacon is fully cooked.  Remove the bacon and place on a plate lined with paper towel.

  2. In the same saucepan, cook the onion and celery until fragrant and transparent, about 4-5 minutes, stirring.  Add the bacon, creamed corn, milk and frozen corn and bring to a simmer.

  3. Season with salt and pepper and serve.

Recipe Notes

To make this vegetarian simply leave out the bacon and skip step 1. Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pot before adding the onions and celery in step 2.
