I added celery, carrots, and clams, and replaced the water with chicken broth and the milk with half-and-half. Maybe some bacon grease was added for flavor since butter wasn't included, but who knows for sure. I think I'd omit the corn since it made it more of a corn chowder feel than seafood chowder, but good none-the-less. Cook the bacon while you're chopping the veggies and the prep time is close to 15 minutes.
