A great soup. I made a few changes- omitted the bacon and carrots and used creamed corn instead of regular corn. The soup was quite thick so I had to add a bit more milk. This was a great way to use up some leftover ham!
Oh this is a wonderful chowder.... it is hard to believe it was so simple to make, such a perfect combination of flavors. Thank you very much. I always have to use considerably more milk as it is very thick, just add until I get the consistency that I want.
This was delicious. I didn't have any bacon, and it still tasted wonderful. A great way to use up leftover ham.
I have been making this chowder for several years and my whole family LOVES it! My college girls are so excited when I tell them I am making it for them when they come home! The only thing I change is the amount of bacon (I use less) and I use center cut bacon, since we are not crazy about the fat. This and homemade cornbread are a PERFECT cold-weather meal.
This chowder is definitely hearty. A perfect way to use up left over ham. The only deviation I made from the recipe was to add a couple cloves of garlic because my family LOVES gralic. I would also use a sharp cheddar next time. Thanks for sharing - this one is definitely a keeper!
This is a fantastic recipe and my husband just LOVES it. I have made it a handful of times and the only change that I would suggest is to use medium cheddar dheese. It brings out more flavor in the chowder. Yumm
This really should be a 4.5 stars because I gave it 5 stars and DH gave it 4. This is really a good soup recipe!! I made it as directed except for using 2 BabyBel cheeses in addition to my sharp cheddar since I was short a bit of cheese, using frozen corn instead of canned, and adding a bit more milk when I added the ham as my soup seemed quite thick at that point. I would recommend dicing your carrot, potato and ham fairly small (at least smaller than I did!) to be done at the 20 minute mark. I had to cook mine a bit longer than that to get the potatoes done, but that was not a big deal. This was a delicious soup served with easy garlic bread for a warm and tasty supper. I think this soup will be even better the next day--I'll update my review to let you know! Made for the Winter 2010 I Recommend Tag Game.
It was good, but too salty and tangy once I added the bacon and cheese. If I make it again, I'll go for just a cream based chowder and omit the cheddar. Good flavor though.
So tasty and delicious! It was a big hit with my grandchildren! They wanted me to give their mom the recipe so she could make it for them! Loved it!
This was good but it didn't make very much so next time I'm going to double it since my husband & kids eat large portions.
