Ingredients

  • 2 slices applewood smoked bacon
  • ¾ cup sliced green onions divided
  • ¼ cup chopped celery
  • 1 lb yellow summer squash chopped
  • 1 lb frozen white and yellow baby corn kernels thawed and divided
  • 2 ¼ cups 1% low-fat milk divided
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • tsp salt
  • ¼ cup 1 ounce shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese

Instructions

  • 1. Cook the bacon in a large Dutch oven (or skillet) over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan, reserving 2 teaspoons drippings in pan. Crumble bacon, and set aside. Add 1/2 cup onions, celery, and squash to drippings in pan; sauté 8 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
  • 2. Reserve 1 cup corn; set aside. Place the remaining corn and 1 cup milk in a blender; process until smooth. Add remaining 1 1/4 cups milk, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper to blender; process just until combined. Add pureed mixture and reserved 1 cup corn to pan. Reduce heat to medium; cook 5 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring constantly. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon salt. Ladle about 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with about 1 tablespoon bacon, 1 tablespoon remaining onions, and 1 tablespoon cheese.
