For a cold night

It has been cold here the past several days and cold weather always leaves me wanting some homemade soup. Today I decided to try one that I have never had before and was very pleased with the results. Here is the recipe:

Cheesy Corn Chowder
6 large potatoes peeled and cubed
1 teaspoon salt
1 lg onion chopped
1/4 c. butter
2 cans (14 3/4 oz each) cream style corn
4 strips bacon cooked and crumbled
3 c. milk
8 oz Colby cheese cubed

Place potatoes in large pan, cover with water, add salt and boil until tender. Meanwhile in a large skillet, sautee' onion in butter until tender, add bacon and corn and heat through. Once potatoes are done, drain them and put them back in the pan then add the milk and heat through. Add the corn mixture to the potatoes, then add the cheese and heat until cheese is melted. Serve immediately. (Serves 12-14)

I changed it up a bit by using only a medium onion and I cheated and used fully cooked bacon and added more than the 4 pieces called for. You will likely also want to salt and pepper to taste but it makes a really good soup!
