Simply Delicous Creamy Clam Chowder

One of my sons and my all time favorite restaurant is hundreds of miles from our home. It's the Chowder Bowl in Newport, Oregon. Last week my son couldn't get their creamy clam chowder out of his mind and was craving it so I made it. I didn't even have to look at a recipe it was all instinctive. If you are craving a seafood comfort, make this chowder. It's so easy and so satisfying. 2 regular sized cans of clams with all their juice (you can't have too many clams so don't get worried about the size of the cans you put in), 4 slices of bacon chopped up, 1/2 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of butter, 2 potatoes peeled and diced into cubes, 1/2 large white onion chopped up, 1/2 cup of cream, 8 cups of milk, salt and pepper. In a medium sized pot, melt butter. Add the onion, bacon and potato and stir for about 10 minutes on a medium heat, careful not to burn onions. Then add flour to make a roux and stir until all crumbly. Add cream and milk and whisk quickly so lumps don't form. Once mixed add the two tins of clams with the juice and stir over medium heat. It will get nice and thick. Then add salt and pepper and enjoy! So delicious!!!!
