One night I was making mashed potatoes and I put in too much milk.

So in the end I didn't have mashed potatoes I had a kind of potato chowder that was really, really good.

I've made it since all on it's own instead of as a side dish to a meal.

I've made a lot of things from mistakes that, with a little consideration, came out great.


  • Potatoes--however many you need for the people you are serving
  • Milk--too much, enough to make the potatoes soupy
  • Bacon--1 strip per potato, cooked and diced
  • Green Onions--to taste
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese--to taste
  • 1-2 packages frozen corn or 1-2 cans of, drained
  • Butter--to taste


  • Boil and mash the potatoes, add some butter and enough milk to make the potatoes soupy.
  • Add some butter
  • Add the diced bacon to the potatoes.
  • Chop the green onions (including the green part) and add to potatoes.
  • Add the corn and stir. If it's not soupy enough add more milk.
  • Top with or stir in some shredded cheddar cheese.
