This clam chowder is delicious! I doubled the recipe so I have plenty to freeze in single serve containers for packed lunches. Only change I made was to add some fresh parsley. I love the flavor of the bacon in this recipe.

Absolutely loved this!! Will definitely add it to my regular rotation! I made this on the stovetop in a couple hours while I was home on a Sunday - you don't need the slow cooker unless you want to, but you do need time for it to thicken. This freezes beautifully in individual portions for quick weekday meals!I used two time-saving steps: I didn't peel my potatoes, since the skin contains most of the nutrients, and I used jarred real bacon pieces because I always make such a mess frying bacon.
