Tasted really nice, I added corn. The consistency was a bit watery, so I had to use corn starch to thicken it. Will try a dash of hevy whipping cream next time.
Nice flavour but 1 tablespoon of pepper is a bit much. I'd reduced it to less than 1/4 tsp.
I couldn't find my old recipe from years ago, but this seemed to resemble it the closest. I used chucken broth and added a flour thickening to make it a CHOWDER. Very good on a cold fall day.
I added a bit more carrots and used only 1 1/2 cups of fat free milk. Blended half of the soup & added the bacon bits back in before serving along with fresh dill! YUM!!!
This had good flavor but is not a chowder. Chowders should be thick and creamy and this was watery and thin. If you want a soup it would be good.
I recommend replacing 1 cup of milk with evaporated milk instead, for a velvety texture. This is a great base recipe - and depending upon your taste you can always thicken it with a simple white...
Very good. Doubled the bacon, cut the veggie broth to 2C, added more milk and carrots, used 1t of pepper, then added 3/4 pound of shredded american to the pot at the end. Yum.
