Corn Chowder

1 two-pound bag of frozen corn

1/2 cup of chopped onions

enough water to cover corn

4 cups of milk

2 tablespoons of butter

3 tablespoons of flour

1 slightly beaten egg

1 to 2 cups left over mashed potatoes

salt and pepper to taste

 

In large sauce pan combine; corn, onion, water salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then cook corn till tender.( I cook mine for an hour at medium temperature, stirring occasionally.

Stir in 3 1/2 cups of the milk and the butter.

Combine 1/2 cup of milk and the flour then add to corn.

Add the mashed potatoes, stir until thick and bubbly.Gradually stir about 1 cup of the hot mixture into the egg then add back to the hot mixture.Cook over low heat for 2 minutes.

I like this chowder with Mexican Cornbread or Italian bread.
