Bacon and Corn Chowder

This is a hearty soup, and can be used as the main dish. My mother made this when we were children and I always looked forward to it. Served with a little crusty bread it's a meal. Cooks up quickly.

3 slices of bacon, diced
1 can creamed corn
1 chopped onion
1 cup diced potato
1 Tablespoon sugar
3 cups hot water
1 can evaporated milk or
2 cups milk or cream
2 egg yolks

Fry the bacon until crisp, then add onion and potato. Saute lightly. Add everything but the milk and eggs. Bring to a simmer and cook about 35 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the milk and heat slowly. When ready to serve, add a little hot soup to 2 egg yolks and beat with a fork. Add to soup while stirring. Add 1 Tablespoon of butter. Sprinkle with parsely. Serves 4 easily.
