Cindy's Awesome Clam Chowder Recipe
This quick and easy clam chowder, filled with potatoes and bacon is wonderful served with hot sourdough bread.
This chowder definitely lives up to it's name! It is not too milky, or too clammy, it's just right! Very hearty and easy soup to make. I used chicken broth in place of water to cover my potatoes, may try using extra clam juice next time. I also added in an onion with the potato and carrot, just because I had one and I felt like it should be in there . I did only use one package of the leek soup mix merely because I am a dork and only grabbed one at the store. I think one did the soup just fine though : ) Served it up in some sourdough breadbowls (wish I could have made those too!) and it was to die for! My man couldn't stop saying how good it was, best we've ever had. Thanks for the awesome recipe Cindy!
AMAZING.. i added green onion, corn, yellow onion and bay scallops to this...the bacon adds a smokey taste..combined with chunky clams and scallops.. the leek soup mix thickens this chowder lovely.. i actually used only a pint of half and half and added whole milk.. this recipe is WONDERFUL!!!
This soup was absolutely delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
Great recipe, thanks! I did add a pinch of crushed rosemary at the end, but otherwise followed your recipe to the letter. Excellent!
