“This is such an easy recipe for clam chowder, it's one of my favorites! You can use more than two 5-ounce cans for this recipe if desired! Serving size is only estimated I could eat the whole thing myself LOL!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a heavy-bottomed pot brown the bacon, then add in onions, celery, thyme, bay leaf and garlic (if using); saute for about 4 minutes.
  2. Add in wine, whipping cream, milk and the juice from the clams (save the clams to add in the end).
  3. Add in the grated potato; bring to a slow simmer and cook for about 20 minutes until the grated potato softens, releases the starches and thickens the chowder base.

  5. Season with salt and lots of black pepper.
  6. Delicious!
