My grandmother (Nonnie) used to make this chowder using leftover veggies from the week and a piece of ham on the bone. It's incredibly creamy and the thyme and pepper make it such a savory dish. I use a piece of boneless ham steak, but I find that if I don't use ham on the bone, I need to add some salt to get the flavor right. Enjoy!

Ive made this recipe before. Its great folks and don't change a thing except maybe your seasoning preference. Serve with some steaming hot rolls with real butter (butter is more healthy) and you have a cold weathers night winner.

This was excellent. I only used white onion because Vidalia are not in season now, I didn't have the chicken bouillon so used about 1/2 of the 3 cups milk and 1-1/2 cups chicken broth. I also sauteed a little celery along with the onion.

I wish I could give this 4.5 stars. While it was very good, I feel like something essential was missing. I added some celery that I cooked with the onion and also some garlic. I think next time I make this, I'll take the suggestion of another reviewer and stir in some cheese at the end. Thanks for the recipe, Kristin. My husband really loved this and I loved how simple it was to prepare.
