Corn Chowder

I got this recipe from my blogging buddy Meichelle

2lbs potatoes-peeled and cubed
1 lb. bacon
1 onion chopped
1/2 c. flour
8 c. milk
Cube and a 1/2 of butter
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
3 (15-oz.) cans creamed corn
1/4 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Dash paprika

Boil potatoes in salted water until soft. Drain. Mash half of the
potatoes and set aside. Fry the bacon until very crisp. Crumble
the bacon and set aside. Fry the onion in the butter until
translucent and soft. Dump the cooked onions into a large
stock pot. Add the flour and heat until the mixture is bubbly
and the flour is well dissolved. Add the milk and bring to a boil
over medium-low heat, stirring frequently. Once boiling add
the salt, pepper, bacon, corn and all the potatoes.
(If desired reserve some of the bacon for the garnish.)
Heat soup until hot. Serve with a dash of paprika,
a sprinkling of cheddar cheese and some crumbled bacon.
