This is a recipe I learned about 10 years ago while working at my neighborhood store/deli. It's not fancy, make a big pot and is super yummy! It is my go to recipe for chowder as I don't east seafood. *Cook's note* I like mine in a warm bread bowl, but it also serves well with simple bread and butter or out of a large coffee mug. This recipe usually fills my pot witch I think is a 4 qt Casserole with a couple inches to spare. Sometimes I use more potatoes but the 2 most important ingredients are the bacon and evaporated milk.
