Yum! This was really great and enjoyed by both my fiance and me and so easy to make. I didn't have any heavy cream so I used 2 cups of half and half, but I don't think it changed the recipe much. I also made it a day ahead of time, which I always do for fish chowder or lobster stew. It was really great! I will be making this again, maybe add more bacon next time, but we love bacon so thats a personal preference. Great recipe chia, thanks!
