Jessica T. says I like Smithfield on facebook.

 

In honor of International Bacon Day, which was yesterday,  Tuesday, September 4th, I agreed to check out Smithfield’s popular Pouch Pack bacon and Hometown Original bacon. We love bacon around here… it never lasts long. I am not shocked that bacon has it’s own holiday … I mean, really … I saw bacon cupcakes at the cupcake shop last week. (Crazy! AND they were almost sold out of them for the day!) There is so much that can be done with bacon, and I am starting to use it more and more in recipes. I found this yummy looking recipe on the Smithfield’s website (they have so many to choose from!) and I picked out one for this weekend:

Ham and Bacon Corn Chowder

A hearty soup of potatoes and corn with the smokey flavors of bacon and ham.

Serves: 8
Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound Smithfield Bacon, cooked crisp and chopped (reserve bacon fat)
  • 1 1/2 cups Smithfield ham, diced
  • 4 medium red potatoes, cubed
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 dashes hot sauce
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups cream-style corn
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups half and half
  • Chives, chopped for garnish

Steps

In a medium stock pot add reserved bacon fat, potatoes, onion, oregano, bacon and hot sauce. Cook over medium-low heat until onions are translucent. Pour in the chicken stock, corn, and ham. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and cover pot. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender. In a small saucepan, warm the half-and-half but do not boil. Add the warm half and half to the chowder just before serving. Garnish with chopped chives.

Serving Suggestions

Serve with a crisp green salad and crusty bread.

Print a coupon: In celebration of National Bacon Day (yesterday) Smithfield’s is also offering a coupon right now worth $1.00 off on their facebook page here. (To print coupon, “like” them and follow instructions)

My thoughts? If you haven’t tried Smithfield’s bacon…then you should add it to your “to do” list. It’s one of our favorites as it is crisp and balanced (not just a lot of fat that leaves you searching for the meat). We love it for BLT’s but I am also starting to branch out to fitting bacon into more of our meals and I am very excited to try out this new soup recipe this weekend!
