Bacon Corn soup

It's -4º F here in Iowa today.  The weather outside isn't fit for woman or beast.  But, it's perfect weather for a nice, steaming hot bowl of soup!

I dug in my pantry and came up with this.  Enjoy!

Bacon Corn Soup  ALA Karla

3 Strips thick cut Bacon- cut into cubes
1 small diced onion or 1 heaping TBSP. dried onion
4 cups Water
1 TBSP. Chicken or Vegetable Base
½ tsp Mrs. Dash
Pepper to taste
4 cups cubed potatoes (about 10 small)
1 can  (12oz.) Evaporated Milk
1 can Corn regular-drained  (can use creamed if you desire a sweeter soup )

Saute’ bacon cubes and onion (if using fresh) in a 4 qt. saucepan until bacon is browned and onion translucent. Drain grease if excessive.   Add Water, broth paste, Mrs. Dash and potatoes.  Boil until potatoes are tender.  Turn down heat.  Add evaporated milk and corn.  Season with pepper if desired.  I don’t add salt because the broth base is loaded with it.  Simmer for 5 minutes to develop the flavors.  Serve with some crusty bread on the side.
