Lord Charleys Corn Chowder

I once had corn chowder in a restaurant called Lord Charleys that was absolutely delicious. After many attempts to duplicate the recipe, I've come as close as possible without knowing the exact ingredients used and find it delicious. I hope you too will enjoy it.



  • 6 slices of bacon, diced
  • 1/2 cup of finely chopped onion
  • 2 cups of diced raw potatoes
  • 1-1/2 cups water
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. pepper (I use white pepper for this)
  • 2 cups of cream style corn
  • 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • Parsley
  • Shredded cheese (I use mild Cheddar cheese)


Fry bacon until crisp. Remove bacon. Saute onion in 2 Tbsp. bacon drippings until transparent, not brown. Cook potatoes in the water with salt, sauteed onion and bacon in covered pan until tender. Add pepper and corn. Blend the margarine or butter and the flour; stir in milk and cook until slightly thickened. Add to corn mixture. Sprinkle parsley and shredded cheese over the top. Serve immediately.
