  • 1 Tbsp. butter

  • 1 med. onion diced
  • 32 oz. chicken broth
  • 5 medium red potatoes chopped into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 cup milk
  • 1 pkg. dry country gravy
  • 2 cup frozen corn
  • 1 cup shredded cheese plus extra for topping
  • 6 slices of bacon cut into tiny strips (slivers)


  • Slice potatoes, onion, and bacon. Set aside.
  • Heat butter and oil in a large stockpot. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently until translucent.
  • Add potatoes and chicken broth. Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are fork tender, about 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cook the bacon slivers.
  • When the bacon slivers are nice and crispy, remove from heat and drain on paper towels. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk milk and the country gravy packet together. Add to soup and stir until thickened on med-low heat.
  • Add frozen corn and shredded cheese. When corn has heated through, and the cheese has melted, remove from heat.

Sprinkled with bacon crumbles and shredded cheese, it is the ultimate comfort food. Add sour cream, green onions, or whatever you’d like.
