Ingredients (for the Potato & Corn Chowder)

  • 3 cans of sliced potatoes, drained (or you can slice the potatoes yourself) 
  • 2 cans creamed corned
  • 1 lb. 93% or 99% fat free ground turkey (you can use ground beef or chicken, or even use sausage if you want) 
  • 1 tsp. Paprika  
  • 1 tsp. Basil
  • 1 tbsp. whole wheat flour (optional, use if chowder needs thickening at the end) 
  • Salt and pepper to taste  

Directions  (for the Potato & Corn Chowder)

  1. Brown ground turkey (or other meat) in a skillet with a little bit of olive oil.  
  2. In a large pot, pour in creamed corn and potatoes. Let simmer over heat until barely boiling.
  3. Once turkey is cooked, add to the large pot.  
  4. Add in additional spices and stir well.  
  5. If it needs thickening, add a tbsp. of flour.  
  6. Serve over cornbread waffles

Ingredients (for Cornbread Waffles) 

  1. 2 packages of cornbread mix (I used Jiffy) 
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 2/3 c. skim milk

Directions (for Cornbread Waffles) 

  1. Follow directions on the box.
  2. Once you've mixed everything together, use a waffle iron and make the cornbread waffle just like you would a regular waffle.  I used a ladle full per waffle.
  3. Let cook on the waffle iron for about 2 minutes per waffle. This may vary depending on how hot your waffle iron is. 
  4. Serve with Potato & Corn Chowder. 

This recipe was so easy. It took about 20-30 minutes to make everything and it was really filling. We had a friend over for dinner, and it was great to serve to a guest. Oh, and it's husband approved, which is hard to come by with soups and chowders!
