Sweet Corn, Bacon & Green Pepper Chowder

with Old Bay Toast

We couldn’t be prouda of this chowda! This creamy soup has all the veggies worth boasting about, like corn, green pepper, and tender russet potatoes. Cream cheese and melty cheddar are swirled in for extra richness, then, it’s all dolloped with sour cream and garnished with scallions. On the side, there’s toasted baguette slathered with an Old Bay butter so you can sop up every last drop.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

• Adjust rack to top position and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small microwave-safe bowl; set aside to soften (you’ll use it in Step 4). Wash and dry produce. • Core, deseed, and dice green pepper into ¼-inch pieces. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Dice potatoes into ½-inch pieces. Drain and rinse corn.

Cook Veggies

• Melt 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add green pepper and scallion whites; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until softened, 2-3 minutes. • Add flour; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, 1 minute.

Start Chowder

• Slowly stir milk into pot a splash at a time until fully incorporated. Stir in 1¼ cups water (2¼ cups for 4 servings). • Add potatoes, stock concentrates, and half the Old Bay Seasoning (you’ll use more in the next step). Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are very tender, 15-20 minutes. TIP: To test, pierce one piece with a fork—it should go through easily.

Heat a medium dry pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon; cook, turning occasionally and adjusting heat if browning too quickly, until crispy, 6-10 minutes. Turn off heat; transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Once cool enough to handle, roughly chop.

Mix Butter & Make Toast

• Meanwhile, combine softened butter, ¼ tsp Old Bay Seasoning (½ tsp for 4 servings), and ¼ tsp sugar (½ tsp for 4) until smooth. (TIP: If the butter is still cold, microwave for 10 seconds to soften.) Taste and add more Old Bay Seasoning if desired. • Halve baguette lengthwise; spread cut sides with Old Bay butter. Place, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. • Toast on top rack until golden, 3-5 minutes.

Finish Chowder

• Once potatoes are tender, reduce heat to low and mash with a potato masher or fork to desired consistency. TIP: We recommend mashing until almost smooth, leaving a few small potato pieces for texture. • Stir in cream cheese, corn, and Monterey Jack until fully incorporated and chowder is thick and creamy. If needed, stir in splashes of water until chowder reaches desired consistency (it will be very thick at this point). Season generously with salt and pepper.

Once cream cheese, corn, and Monterey Jack are fully incorporated, stir in half the bacon.

Finish & Serve

• Halve Old Bay toast on a diagonal if desired. • Divide chowder between bowls. Garnish with scallion greens and sour cream. Serve with Old Bay toast on the side.

Garnish chowder with remaining bacon.

Bacon is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145º.
