Reviews for Autumn Chowder
"Hearty and tasty. Everything a chowder should be. I did add more salt and freshly ground black pepper to suit our tastes. I also added some chopped celery as I had some I wanted to use. I served it with a loaf of crusty rosemary bread and it was delicious."
"It took some math to triple this recipe to accommodate my family, but it was totally worth it! I added a little salt at the table, will try adding 1/2 tsp in while cooking next time, and served it with sour cream on top. LOVE it!"
"for those who don't want 2 portion servings go to recipies for cooking for a crowd since you eat a lot. This is a great recipe"
"This chowder was so delicious. It was a chilly, rainy day and it really hit the spot. Even the two year old went back for seconds!"
"This is delicious and definitely a hearty soup which is welcome at this time of year.And for those of you who take issue with the serving for 2, it is very easy to just double or triple the recipe to make as much as you desire! It's often very difficult to find a recipe that works for just 2 since you can't always use 1/2 a can of soup or something similar."
"I agree with jillknit. I'm always looking for recipes for which we don't have days of left overs."
"Sorry to see brianj58 comment. There are many of us out here that have raised our families and no longer need to make large quantites. This recipe works perfectly for my husband and me. Thanks for taking the time to adapt some recipes into smaller portions."
"Sorry - I "HATE" 2 serving recipes...it's a waste of time. I want to eat! I would have to make 6 times as much to feed me and have left overs!!! :)"
"When making this soup,I doubled the recipe. I did not have bacon, so I used bacon bits ( real ) in a jar, and saute them in 1 tbl . of veg. oil. I also added chopped celery and carrots with onion and saute in bacon oil. then I added it to potatoes to boil. I also doubled water , to use less milk. instead of flour, cornstarch was handy.turned out very good !"
"Very Good; used chicken Broth instead"
