Recipe: Simple Corn Chowder with Turkey and Applewood-Smoked Bacon Paninis

By Tina O’Toole, Staff Writer

This is a great recipe for the cooler spring days.  It is still comfort food to warm you up, but much lighter than most chowders or stews that you might crave in the winter.  The chowder is simple and great for a tight budget.  If you do not have a Panini grill, you can cook the sandwich in a pan like a grilled cheese with regular sliced bread. 

Corn Chowder

Makes approximately 4 servings

Servings size= 1 cup

2 tablespoons butter

½ cup diced onion

2 cans creamed corn

½ cup milk

¼ teaspoon garlic powder

¼ teaspoon pepper

salt to taste


Place pot on stove and turn heat to medium.  Melt butter, add onions, and sauté until onions become translucent.  Add cans of cream corn, milk, garlic powder, and pepper.  Stir.  Add salt to taste, bring to boil, and then take the pot off the heat.  Serve immediately.

Turkey and Applewood Smoked Bacon Panini

Ciabatta rolls, or a comparable flat roll

Deli turkey sliced thin

Provolone cheese slices

Cooked strips of applewood smoked bacon

Dijon or honey mustard



Preheat Panini grill.  Slice rolls.  Layer the ingredients in the following order: turkey, bacon, provolone, tomatoes, and mustard.  Put top of roll on, place on preheated grill and cook for approximately 3 to 5 minutes or until golden and cheese melts.  Serve immediately.

If you do not have a Panini grill, you can brush the outside of the sandwich with olive oil, and pan fry it for 3-5 minutes per side until golden and cheese is melted.
