Reviews for Grandmother's Chowder
"The only changes I made weres using McCormicks "Monreal Steak" seasoning in the meat mixture and then added a little bit of salt, and I added baby carrots and chives for color. I didn't have 12 potatoes, so I used 8, and seems to be plenty. This soup is out of this world good - we're serving it to company tonight with a salad and homemade rolls! This one is definitely a keeper!"
