Instructions Checklist
  • In a large straight-sided skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, turning once, until crisp, 10 minutes. Transfer to paper towels. Add onion, garlic, and a pinch of salt to skillet; cook, stirring, 8 minutes. Stir in 4 cups corn, then 2 cups water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer; cook, stirring occasionally, until corn is tender and most of liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a large bowl; stir in 1 1/2 cups ice water and sour cream. Blend corn mixture (in two batches, if necessary) until smooth. Refrigerate, stirring occasionally, until cold, 45 minutes.

  • Toast bread. Top with cheese, tomatoes, and bacon; season with salt and pepper. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with remaining 1/2 cup corn, more pepper, and drizzles of oil; serve.

Cook's Notes

When shucking corn, use a dry vegetable brush to clear off stubborn silk threads. After cutting off the kernels, use the back of your knife to scrape any residual "corn milk" into the bowl.
