Add milk and cream and bring just to a boil.

Reduce heat to moderately low.

Add cubed potatoes, salt and pepper and cook for about 8 minutes, gently stirring occasionally, until the potatoes become tender.

Serve with crusty French bread and lots of crackers.

Optional: Adjust the thickness with broken up saltine or soda .


  1. Good afternoon Nee,
    We had a big snow storm yesterday and the weathermen say that this may be the last of the snow and the cold temps. Next week it will be in the 40's maybe 50 degrees. Yeah!!! That would be wonderful. Now this Corn Crowder with Cod Fillets is a perfect dish for a cold Friday. Love the corn mixed with the fish and the potatoes. Looks so yummy..the flavor must be awesome! Wonderful recipe and I will have to make this for next is really easy and it will hit the spot. My choice will be a chuck of French make sure I got up every drop. Thanks for sharing...Have a wonderful weekend dear friend.
    Dottie :)

  2. Good afternoon Dottie,
    Heard it on the news about the weather up there . I was so happy to hear that , I have many family members and friends in the east and along the path of the rough weather .
    Oh Dottie , the 40's and up will feel like a heat wave .
    The corn Crowder is perfect for a cold day and the best part is you can also make it with salmon or any coarse fish of your choice . Like you I like the French bread , good for sopping .

    If you notice , most Southerners throw everything in the pot and name the dish later . (giggling) .
    Did you notice no heat , but the peppers are on the side .
    Thanks for stopping by and it's wonderful you will get to take a walk without the snow . Have a wonderful weekend and happy cooking . :) Nee
