“I made the recipe up with leftovers I had one day. It's a ham and potato based soup with leeks, onions, rosemary, cream, bacon, and carrots. The ham and bacon give this soup a smoky taste while the cream gives it a rich texture. Chowder is better served the next day.”

This was great! I was browsing for a recipe for my leftover Christmas ham, and I just happened to have all the other ingredients on hand (even a leek!) The only thing I modified (besides using a little less of most of the veggies and bacon than the recipe called for, but only because I didn't have on hand as much as the recipe called for) was to follow the other's advice for cutting down on the rosemary. I use crushed rosemary, and two teaspoons was plenty...still had the flavor, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I had enough to feed five of us tonight, and froze the other half for another cold night when I don't have time to cook. This is a keeper!

This recipe called for way too much rosemary. When I made it, I halfed it and it still tasted too strong. The rest of the ingredients went fine together. Maybe using a 1/4 of the amount of rosemary would make it more desireable.

This is one tasty chowder! I used 1% milk and thickened to my liking with potato flakes after being refrigerated for 1 day so that I could skim the excess hardened fat. I added some dried parsley just to add a touch of green to the dish. This tastes so good after the flavors fully meld after a day or so that it will be a great meal to make on the weekend and enjoy on a busy work night!
