I’ve been making this clam chowder soup recipe now for the last past 8 years. I originally found this recipe in a Roughing it Camping Guide cook book many moons ago, and of course, I know the main ingredients, but of course like everyone – You tweak it a bit.
Today I was in a Rush as I was on my way to the gym. So I set out the main ingredients, and left a message for my husband to cook it for supper. I personally think he added way too much butter, but I’m not going to complain as I didn’t make it, and It was yummy enough that I finished off two bowls.
It’s rather a cheap meal considering how many servings you will get.
Servings 8 full big bowls. This is how my husband made it tonight.
Chop up your onion and Cut your bacon up into small pieces ( or you can use bacon bits if you have the Real Bacon Bits – but it will cost you more I’ve done this a few times, and it still tastes great)
Fry Your bacon and onion together in a frying pan - set off to the side.
In a Large pot - Put in the 2 cans of baby clams including the juice and turn your stove on medium heat. Add all ingredients,( including your bacon/onion mixture. You can of course add to it such as potatoes, onions, etc, if you want more substance.
Bring it to a high simmer, and stir constantly approximately 15-20 minutes.
Set on low and let simmer until ready to serve.
Other Ways I’ve done this, that still works.
Exchange Leek soup mix for knorr celery soup mix, or any cream based soap mix would work.
Play with the cream/Milk – When I’m watching my fat content, I use milk and little water.
I’ve been in a hurry and didn’t add onions
I’ve added diced baby potatoes diced in a few times. ( The more ingredients you add, just be warned your cooking time may be a little longer.
The Original Recipe I remembered called for a liter of cream, and very little water, but I found it to be a little too rich for my liking. I remember the original Recipe was CREAM, Water, Leek Soup Mix, baby clams with juice, and bacon bits.
