Hatteras Style Clam Chowder

Rated as 4.39 out of 5 Stars

"This is 'Hatteras style.' I work in a restaurant near the North Carolina coast and make this two times a week. I have scaled down the batch for home use. It is very simple. You can also use the bacon grease to saute the vegetables in. "

I live in Cape Hatteras, NC!! And trust me, this recipe is a local favorite. After you try it, you will NEVER eat creamy or tomato based chowder again!
