Absolutely love this recipe. I also add....a small piece of haddock cut up and shrimp. If the grocery store has pre-cooked lobsters, I'll pick one up and throw that into as well. I use Bar Harbor brand New England Style condensed Clam Chowder (being from New England this was a given). This chowder is so thick and tasty. My boyfriend absolutely loves it :)

Great, great, great, multiple-thumbs-up recipe, but I did add a couple ingredients: equal amts. of 1/4-1/2 tsp. sage and thyme, 1/2-1 C. crumbled bacon, and 1/4 C. each diced carrots and celery to the butter/onion mix. Also, mash half of the potatoes, and be sure to use a condensed soup such as Campbell's. A sure hit for those seafood chowder fans!

I've prepared this chowder many time over the years and have loved it! One time, I had the idea to also add a drained small can of baby shrimp and a drained can of baby clams (I supposed you could used minced, however) just to "beef" up the seafood aspect of it. With a side salad and some warmed crusty bread it truly is a keeper!

Easy and delicious. I used a small package of frozen shrimp instead of the crab. My picky 8 year old ate two bowls. Yum!
