You’ll be happier than a clam with this sweet veggie chowder, which is fully loaded with bites of bacon and green onion, and an herb butter for swirling and spreading on toast.

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the chowder to a simmer. Cut the potato into bite-size pieces (you should have about 2 cups). Add the potato to the chowder and simmer until tender, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, 12 to 15 minutes, depending on size.
Meanwhile, shuck the corn and cut the kernels from the cob. Slice the green onions. Roughly chop the bacon.
In a small frying pan over medium heat, add the bacon and fry until crispy, 5 minutes. Slice and toast the baguette.
When the potatoes are ready, add the corn kernels to the simmering chowder, and cook just until tender, 2 minutes longer. Season with salt to taste.
Ladle the corn chowder into bowls, and swirl in a pat of the basil butter. Top with the green onions and bacon, and grind with pepper. Serve warm, with the baguette for dipping.
