  1. In a large stock pot cover potatoes with enough water so they are fully covered. Bring to boil, then reduce to a simmer.
  2. In a saute pan cook onion and bacon, over medium heat, until onions are soft. Add to potato mixture.
  3. Once potatoes become soft, and the broth has a milky look to it, add cut up fish fillets. Heat until fish fillets are cooked through.
  4. Add enough milk product to bring soup to your desired taste and texture. Season with white pepper and serve.

I prepared this chowder for a church dinner for 75 people. It was a tremendous hit. Most people came back for seconds, a few for thirds. Easy to and quick to prepare.

This meal was delicious. I have always wanted to make my own chowder. This was perfect. The next time I will put more fish in it though.

it should not even get one star, but the website makes you put at least one in - but really no stars.....
