Clam Chowder

Easy and quick to fix.


  • 2 slices diced bacon
  • 1 med. diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1-2 cup diced potatoes
  • 2 cup hot water
  • Ad
  • 1 can minced clams (shrimp or left over fried fish)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cup hot milk
  • 1 Tbsp. flour


Fry bacon in skillet; remove all but 2 Tbsp fat.

Add onion and celery, fry until clear. Add potatoes and water, cook until potatoes are tender.

Stir in clams, salt, pepper and milk. Thicken mixture with the butter and flour.

Cook for 3 minutes but do not allow to boil.

I have brought home deep fried shrimp in a doggie bag and made this chowder, used left over fried fish and all were delicious.

Clam Chowder

Even quicker and almost the same, use instant potatoes, leave out the tomatoes and add milk for a creamy clam chowder. (01/27/2010)
