  • 50 g (ish) butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-4 teaspoons crushed garlic (depending on whether you're a garlic fiend like me or a regular person)
  • 4 rashers bacon chopped
  • 2x420g tins creamed corn
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1.5 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 1/4 cup milk or cream (optional)


  • Melt butter in a saucepan. Cook onion, garlic and ½ tsp thyme until the onion is softened. Add bacon and cook until well coloured. Remove a small amount of bacon to sprinkle on top at the end.
  • Add creamed corn and chicken stock, and stir while bringing to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 mins while stirring semi-regularly to avoid burning at the bottom.
  • Stir in milk or cream at the end (if using) and sprinkle bacon on top when serving.
