So, here it is, the Recipie you've been waiting for! (tee hee!)
1/2 pkg. bacon chopped
2 onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 cloves garlic
Fry the above in some olive oil and then add all the ingredients into the crock pot.
2 potatoes, chopped bite size
4 c frozen corn
4 c chicken broth
1 bay leaf
1 tsp salt
a few splashes of hot sauce
a sprinkle of dried red pepper
1/2 tsp freshly ground pepper
Let this mixture simmer in your crockpot for 8-10 hours on low or 4-6 hours on high, until vegetables are soft and soup is bubbly.
In a saucepan, over medium-high heat,melt 2 tsp butter, add 2 Tbsp flour and stir to make a smooth paste. Slowly add 1 can evaporated milk,whisking constantly to combine. Bring mixture from heat and stir in 1 cup of the cheese of your choice until completely melted. Gradually stir milk sauce mixture into slow cooker.
Cover and cook on High for 20-30 min longer. Serve garnished with additional cheese and parsley.
We had some fresh Scotch Baps with this, it was yummy!
Hope you enjoy on a soup day. I hope i haven't jinxed things cause the sun is coming out here!
