Onion Chowder with Cheesy Onion Popovers | www.tasteandtellblog.com

As much as I hate winter, and especially this inversion we are experiencing here, I do love how it gets you in the mood for a good bowl of soup. I can really eat soup year round, but somehow, it just isn’t the same when the temperature is 90 degrees outside versus a chilly 20 degrees. A good bowl of soup will warm you from the inside out and leave you feeling satisfied like many other foods could never do. In fact, when many people are having a bad day, they reach for the chocolate, but I really think that a warm bowl of soup has the same effect on me. I could spend most winter nights cuddled on the couch in a big blanket with a bowl of soup, and I’d be a happy girl.

So needless to say, I’m always drawn to soup recipes. In fact, just this morning I saw this recipe, and now I can’t stop thinking about it. (Maybe that will be dinner tonight!!) And with the chill of winter in full force right now, I can’t think of a better time to break out the soup recipes.

This soup was delicious. Really, we all know that anything with bacon is delicious, but I really liked this recipe. The popovers, on the other hand – I didn’t really love them. But I didn’t really care, because I really loved this soup. And it really takes so few ingredients – and ingredients that I usually have on hand!!

I guess even though I’m not loving the winter, at least I can satisfy myself with soup!!

Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, chopped
  • 4 white onions, chopped

  • 1¼ cups flour
  • 1 32-ounce container chicken broth
  • 2 cups milk

Fill each muffin cup halfway with batter and place a cube of cheese in center of each. Bake for 25 minutes, then lower the heat to 350 degrees; bake for 15 minutes more.
  5. Stir in the remaining 1 cup milk into the soup and heat through.
  6. Garnish with bacon and chives.
  7. Serve with the popovers.

    what an interesting chow-dah! eating tasty soups like this is the only way i can survive the winter. 🙂

  12. Paula says:

    Ohhhh yeahhh, I’m a soup girl for sure. This looks terrific! I’ve never really had an onion chowder … onion soup, but not chowder. By the way, I ate regular meals (healthy) while I was breastfeeding my youngest daughter. I ate everything … Thai food, onions, garlic, etc. … without any ill effects on my wee one. In fact, she’s now 9 and is my least picky eater. She eats just about everything. Just my experience … everyone’s different … plus I don’t get bothered by those foods, so it makes sense my little one didn’t either.

  24. Sophie says:

    The soup looks beautiful! I’d take it with the panini from the previous post :).

  25. Rose says:

    Do you add the onions to the bacon pan with the grease? Or a new pan? Im kind of confused by that part sorry lol. Looks delish tho and I plan on making it tonight for supper.

    • Deborah says:

      @Rose, you add the onions into the bacon grease that is left in the pan. The grease is the fat you will use to cook the onions. I hope you love it!

  26. I have to get my comfort food in before it warms up! I have included your recipe in my March Real Food Meal Plan. Thanks for sharing!
