Chef John's Bay Scallop Chowder
September 26, 2015

I made this chowder to the letter, EXCEPT I doubled the bacon (cuz who doesn't want more bacon?) and since I couldn't find a Fresno pepper, I used a hot chili pepper. I took Chef John's advice and mashed the potatoes once they were soft enough. I have NO IDEA why he thinks it doesn't look good?!? It looks fantastic and tastes even better! I will definitely make this again and again. My only question now is how do I reheat it without overcooking the scallops?
