Potato Corn Chowder Recipe for Easter Leftovers
A potato corn chowder recipe perfect for your Easter leftovers! I love holidays and the special dinners that go along with them but I don't always love the same leftover food for weeks. This chowder is a perfect way to use us those scalloped potatoes, corn, ham, turkey, or salmon. Whatever your Easter menu entails. Or Thanksgiving, or even Christmas.
EASY Potato Chowder Recipe
If you start with food that's ALREADY made you're in for an easy chowder for dinner! If you don't have leftover scallop potatoes you can use sliced baked potatoes, cream, and cheese to create the chowder base.
Start with the potatoes and milk. I use 2% but if you'd like a creamier version you could use whole milk, or you can sub chicken broth for a thinner version.
Add the Corn
Next, you'll add the corn. You can use a can of corn, corn cut off the cob, or leftover corn casserole.
Chicken, Turkey, Ham, or Salmon Chowder
Use your leftover protein to add to the chowder to make it a meal. Ham, turkey, chicken, and salmon all work great in this chowder. Salmon chowder and Chicken Potato Corn Chowder both make a great after-the-holiday dinner.
Serve Your Chowder With Bread
Spice up your hearty soup with rosemary and seasoning salt. Top it with some shredded sharp cheddar and serve with my favorite Irish Soda bread. It makes for such an easy dinner and after a busy holiday that's a welcome reprieve in the kitchen!
