This chowder is like a bacon-topped baked potato in a bowl. On cold winter days, my family is thrilled to see this meal on the table. —Jacque Manning, Burbank, South Dakota

"I liked this recipe. It was extremely easy to follow, and it turned out tasting very good. Even my picky 5-year-old ate it (he loves bacon). Thank you!"

"It was ok. A little to rich for my taste. Next time I think I will substitute the milk, sour cream and cream of chicken for half and half."
