- Add half and half, milk, butter and clams; heat gently (but do not boil). Serve immediately.
As you can see by the photo's I made a roux while everything was in the pressure cooker and turned out perfect,more using the pressure cooker cutting time in half and taste great.
This was really good!! I did make a few changes to lower the fat and calories, but it was DELICIOUS!! I only used a tiny bit of bacon for flavor, replaced drippings with olive oil (healthier fat) used a can of evap. skim milk in place of half and half and omitted the butter. It was really yummy and easy ...... especially for this novice pressure cooker cook! Thanks! Will be keeping this in the rotation!
Tired this tonight. IT WAS A HIT!
