Wonderful taste

I made this soup thinking my husband wouldn't really care for it,was I wrong. He loved the fresh corn taste, its a keeper recipe.

Golden Summer Corn Soup

Even better than corn on the cob and not as messy. Plan to brown corn a bit with next batch for a 'cooked outdoors' flavor.

Added Crisp Bacon for even more flavor and crunch

The soup is very good, however, my family like a bit of meat in my one-dish meals. I added a garnish of crisp cooked bacon along with the sour cream and chives, and they absolutely raved. With fresh sweet corn available, I will make this soup often. It is even good the next day, reheated in the microwave on medium.

So Good!

I love corn any way you fix it! This is really good. I like to add some leftover mashed potatoes to corn soup too, it adds a thickness and adds some more flavor.
