    Engrossed's Note:

    This is an easy recipe my Grandfather found on the back of a can years ago. He made it because it used up several things he had on hand. He became known for it in the family. It's not good for you and looks horrible but is nice to have at least once a year. It's better the next day. On first bite you might think it's strange but then as you eat it, it becomes addictive. Don't rate it until it's second day! **My Grandmother just told me that this was a recipe SHE found and adapted over the years and was only known as my Grandpa's recipe because he always said "Make me MY soup!". And when my Aunts and Uncles want the recipe they ask for Dad's soup recipe.**

      This probably will work in a crockpot.

      This was good, however I made it a second time with homemade cheese sauce and I used thyme. I guess I'm just a prude when it comes to made from scratch meal. (especially if it involves cheese. I will not even touch processed cheese (someone probably fed me to much of it in nursery school or something. I did everything as directed the first time. After changing things a bit it was much more suitable to my taste (but we all have different pallets) DH liked it both ways.

      I started this early in the morning so it could simmer for hours. I halved the recipe because I only had 1 can of cheese soup and 1 can of evaporated milk. This certainly isn't the typical clam chowder with's quite a good way. Also, I wouldn't say it looks "horrible" at all. Quite the contrary. It's quite a delicious combination. Kind of like a potato-less cross between New England and Manhatten clam chowder with cheese. I like that Grandfather gives us the option of various seasonings; mine were thyme, and garlic powder. I used fresh onion in place of frozen and butter for margarine, otherwise no changes. I wouldn't hesitate at all to make this again. I hope that Grandfather is still with us so you can tell him that I loved his soup. Thanx for sharing his recipe.
