30 minute clam chowder recipe-H2

Being from New England, chowder is on our list of soup cravings during the winter months. But since we are living in Arkansas for the time being, you won’t find clam chowder on many restaurant menus.

Since it was harder to find, if not impossible, I started making our own clam chowder at home. With a bit of time we found the perfect recipe to satisfy our cravings.

So when the colder weather hits and we start to feel a little homesick this warm and hearty soup is just what we need.

Notes

I like to cook my bacon in the oven at 425°. Place on cookie sheet with foil and flip halfway though. It also makes for easy clean up!
When adding salt start with 1/2 tsp. and taste from there.
