1 onion, chopped and sautéed until tender
3 cans sweet corn (or 2 bags frozen corn)
3 red potatoes, cut into bite-size pieces
2 slices bacon, crisped and crumbled (optional)
1 32oz. carton chicken broth
¾ cup milk or half and half
¼ cup cornstarch
Put first five ingredients in crock pot. Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 10-12 hours. During last half-hour of cooking, stir cornstarch into milk or half and half; add to crock pot to thicken.
*** I should add a few notes to these recipes. The corn starch in all my crock pot recipes really is optional. I thicken my recipes because my husband prefers it that way. Also, I do not like a lot of salt and find that the broths make the recipes salty enough for ME, however, my husband always adds salt to his dish so it might be a good idea to add a teaspoon of salt or so to the pot before cooking. Again, totally optional.
