Notes

Tips and Techniques for the Best Cauliflower Corn Chowder

  • If you must substitute the evaporated milk, the best option is to use a combination of whole milk and half-and-half.
  • If you substitute pork bacon, be sure to drain the excess grease after cooking it and before adding the garlic and onion.
  • Store leftovers in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
