In a large soup pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon until browned.

Stir in broth, scraping the bottom of the pot to remove any browned bits.
Add potatoes and corn. Stir, bring to a simmer, and reduce heat to medium.
Cover and cook for 15-20 minutes until potatoes are tender. Reduce heat to low.
Combine milk and corn starch and gradually whisk into soup mixture, a little at a time, until thickened slightly.
