Broccoli Chowder with Corn and Bacon

Even without the bacon, this recipe is still yummy!!

Source:  Everyday Food magazine, Sept. 2008

4 slices bacon, cut into 1" pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 c. all-purpose flour
2 cans (14.5 oz. each) chicken broth
1 large baking potato, peeled and diced
1 head broccoli (about 1 pound), cut into bite-size florets, stalks peeled and thinly sliced
1 package (10 oz.) frozen corn kernels
1/2 t. dried thyme
1 c. whole milk
coarse salt and ground pepper

In a large pot, cook bacon over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until crisp, 8-10 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate.  Increase heat to medium.  Cook onion, stirring until it begins to soften, 6-8 minutes.
Add flour; cook, stirring constantly, 30 seconds.  Add broth and potato; bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to a simmer; cook until potato is tender, about 10 minutes.  Add broccoli, corn, thyme and milk; cook until broccoli is crisp-tender, 8-10 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.  Serve topped with bacon.
