Clam Chowder

This is my Dads clam chowder recipe and such a great meal on a cold night. Try it in the bread bowl recipe! Mmmmmm....

1 pkg bacon
4-6 potatoes
1 med onion
2 cans chopped clams
2 Tbsp flour
2-3 Tbsp butter
~4 c milk
salt, pepper

Cook cut potatoes in water until soft, but not mushy. Fry bacon then add in onions until cooked, set aside. Add 2-3 Tbsps butter to bacon drippings until melted and then add 2 Tbsps flour and mix to a paste. Slowly add about 4 cups milk. Bring to boil stirring constantly until sauce thickens. Add clams, potatoes, and bacon and onion mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Let simmer together for 15 minutes on low heat.

Mmmmm! Another tasty memory from our days at the Y. This is super delicious and is comparable to the ever addicting chowder from Mo's in Oregon. Yum!
