ROSEMARY POTATO & CORN CHOWDER
Prep time: 30 minutes
Makes: 6 1 ½-cup servings
Thanks to O'Brien-style frozen hash browns, you can avoid peeling or dicing potatoes, onions and peppers. Packaged bacon bits eliminate the messy job of bacon-frying, and they contain 50 percent less fat than regular bacon. Using fat-free half-and-half further slashes the fat and calories without losing flavor. You could also use skim milk, but your soup will be less thick and creamy. The rosemary gives a subtle pine-ish flavor.
2 14-ounce cans chicken broth (or 4 chicken bouillon cubes and 1 3/4 cup water)
1 28-ounce package O'Brien-style diced hash brown potatoes
1 3-ounce package shelf-stable bacon bits (or about 3/4 cup of cooked, chopped bacon or 1 cup finely diced ham)
1 15-ounce can corn, drained
2 teaspoons dried rosemary or 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
3 tablespoons cornstarch
¼ cup water
1 ½ cup half-and-half, fat-free half-and-half, or milk
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
Optional garnishes: grated cheddar cheese, bacon bits, rosemary sprigs
1. Place chicken broth, potatoes and bacon in a large pot over high heat.
2. When mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to keep the soup gently boiling about 10 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Add corn.
3. Mix cornstarch and water to a smooth paste. Stir cornstarch mixture into the gently boiling soup, and continue stirring until soup thickens.
4. Turn off the heat and stir in milk or half-and-half and pepper, until mixture is well-blended and the soup re-thickens.
