About this recipe: The simplest recipe you can find for chowder. Onions, bacon, sweetcorn are sauteed together, then heated through with cream. Serve with fresh crusty bread.
This is a nice recipe, but I made several changes to intensify the flavor. I added a couple of finely chopped celery ribs, a diced potato, three large squares of instant chicken bouillon, and a little crushed basil. I used half-and-half instead of heavy cream (this dish is WAY rich enough without heavy cream!!) and also cut the cream to ONE quart. I would probably add more corn and vegetables next time to make it more of a thick chowder. - 09 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
good basic recipe, however i added a pound of fresh crabmeat, used 8 ears of fresh corn, 2 yellow onions and lots of freshly ground pepper. (toasted garlic french bread is mandatory with this dish). - 22 Oct 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
my parents can be picky when it comes new new foods,But when I made this chowder the whole pot was gone. I revised it a little. I used two cans creamed corn and one can whole in place of the ears. - 07 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
