Bacon and sweetcorn chowder

  • serves 2
  • Easy

This creamy, hearty soup is packed with sweetcorn, potato and crisp bacon. It's made with milk rather than cream so it's also surprisingly low-cal. A quick warming supper for two.



  • streaky bacon 3 rashers, chopped
  • oil
  • onion 1 small, finely chopped
  • potato 1 large, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • chicken or vegetable stock 350ml
  • milk 400ml
  • sweetcorn frozen or tinned 200g, drained if tinned
  • chives snipped to make 2 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Fry the bacon in a little oil in a pan – as soon as it starts to colour, add the onion and potato and cook until the onion starts to soften. Add the stock and milk and bring to a simmer.


  • Step 2

    Cook for 5 minutes or until the potato is tender, then add the sweetcorn and heat through. Season and stir in the chives to serve.
