Smurfs, Gotta Love Them
Low Cal Uber Easy Potato and Bacon Chowder
Ok Wifey and I have been dieting for a while now and thought i would share some of our favourite Recipes.
Today is Potato and Canadina Back Bacon Chowder (done in a slow cooker)
2 cups of peeled potatoes (cubed to 1/2" pieces)
1 large Carrot diced
1 cup of leaks (just the white flesh NOT the greenery)
4 cups of low fat chicken broth
1 large Garlic clove (minced) *we used 3 but we are garlic lovers*
1/2 cup Pearl Barley
4 oz of Canadian Back bacon (cut into 1/4" slices)
1/8 TSP black pepper
1 TBS of italian spices (generic blend of spices)
2 oz of lowfat half and half cream
1/2 cup of fat free evaporated milk.
3 bay leaves.
Combine everything EXCEPT milk products into a slow cooker for 6 hours. In the last 10 minutes stir in the milk and cream.
Serves 6 and is crazy good.
