Jo's Slow Cooker Bacon and Corn Chowder

    6 hours

    This is better than any pea and ham soup you could ever make. If you by a bag of bacon bits(good economical buying), good and chunky, you may need to make the pieces a little smaller but don't make the pieces too small.

    Something else. Add the diced potato at the same time as the stock  -  19 Jul 2009


    I don't actually live 'down under' and am wondering what a "packet of soup mix" is? Can you tell me?  -  21 May 2012


    Really delicious! I used normal bacon and added smoked hocks for flavour. Perfect for winter, my whole family devoured it! Thank you.  -  18 Jun 2014
