I must say this is the best clam chowder that has ever come out of my kitchen! Tastes like restraunt quality but really easy to make!! However, I think this makes more than 10 servings, I had to use my LARGEST roasting pan just to hold all the ingrediants. Can't wait to make again! Thanks Becky!
I would never have tried this recipe except for all the good feedback...I did have to alter it a little since I wanted to cook it in the crock pot instead of the oven. I chopped up some celery along w/the onion and used bacon drippings instead of margarine. I added a pinch of thyme like I read in anothers review... I cooked it on low for about 8 hours and don't add the half and half until one hour before finshed. If you do then it will curdle. the easiest and best tasting clam chowder I have ever made!
tried this recipe and i absolutly loved it so did my husband i am funny about clam chowder and there are all kinds out there in resturants and personal recipes and i find this to be the best ever and i have searched for sometime now and have been cooking since well for a while believe me! Try it sure you will agree!!!!!!!
OK... the typical FANTASTIC RATING and review with "exceptions" on the ingredients. First off... FANTASTIC RECIPE.. DOH!!.. could a recipe with base ingredients "out of the can" be better than a "hand wringing" personally inspected and selected batch of ingredients...???? Guess what.. RIGHT ON!!! Now for my "MODS"... everything the same "EXCEPT"... 6 slices of thick bacon crumbled; 1 TBSP of bacon fat reserved and added to the half cup of margarine (we used BUTTER) that I used to saute the 2 cups of onion 4 stalks of chopped celery hearts till translucent/tender and then added 4 Red Potatoes washed scrubbed and then cubed.. LEAVE THE SKINS ON.... We added this to the "canned" ingredients (but in our case they didn't have cream of potato soup so I went with 2 - 6.5 oz cans of cream of onion and 3 - 6.5 oz cans of clam chowder) and a 8 oz. bottle of Snows clam juice. All this was combined with a TBSP of parsley and 1 tsp each of thyme and dill. This was the BEST CLAM CHOWDER we have ever had... so simple it is mind boggling. TRY IT; YOU WILL LIKE IT.
This was great! Everyone but my picky son ate and enjoyed. My little girl asked for 2nds! I did scale down the recipe to 6 servings and I cooked all day on low in the crock pot. I added one stalk of chopped celery a pitch of thyme and a few sprinkles of parsley. What an easy dish to prepare that tastes totally homemade!
This was a huge hit at a recent dinner party! It was so easy to make. I did it in my crockpot. Everyone said it was the best clam chowder they had ever tasted. I didn't have the heart to tell them it was all canned soup. Let them think I went to a lot of trouble! Thanks for the post.
This was disappointing as it was very "soupy". We prefer a thicker clam chowder. Taste wasn't bad but nothing special. It's also a tad pricey to make and takes a huge pan as there's enough soup to feed an army.
