A very easy recipe for a creamy chowder using left over, frozen or pre-made mashed potatoes. For a thicker chowder add some instant mashed potatoes, a little at a time, until desired consistency is reached. I use 1 package Simply Potatoes "Traditional" mashed potatoes For a Seafood Chowder add: 1 lb medium shrimp, Bay Scallops or a combination of both.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a large pot, over medium heat, whisk potatoes with chicken broth and milk.
  2. Saute bacon, until just cooked. Not crispy! Then add with remaining ingredients, to potato mixture. Except seafood, if you're going to use it.
  3. Heat until bubbly.
  4. If adding seafood, put it in, 10 mins before the chowder is finished. That should allow enough time for the shrimp or scallops to cook, without over cooking.
