Corn Chowder Appetizer | This thick and creamy soup served in mini hard rolls makes the perfect appetizer for a special event like a bridal or baby shower, holiday party or wedding reception. I love it when you can take something so simple and package it up to be so elegant.
Not only does this soup make a fun appetizer it’s also delicious! With lots of potatoes, bacon and creamed corn! Perfect as a weeknight meal or as a mini appetizer.
There’s nothing like a hot pot of soup to warm your body through and through. Something fun I like to do is create a soup bar. Everything can be made in advance. Which is totally a hostesses dream.
