"Mighty tasty and very quick!

I added a bit more butter and the clam juice...for a bit of extra taste."

"My husband and I decided this is a keeper! I'm sure whole milk or even 1/2+1/2 would be good but for us 2% was fine. The addition of Old Bay Seasoning kicked it up a notch but it's fine without it."
