Wiki

Clam Chowder is a chowder usually made with broth and clams and enriched with potatoes, onions, and other vegetables to taste. The New England variety, made with cream and flour, is the most popular variety.

I am not a fan of soup as a meal. I don't find it filling enough and I'm more of a fan of things that need to be chewed because doing so tricks my mind into feeling full. Nevertheless, clam chowder is my favorite, with or without bread, even as a meal in itself. I personally enjoy it served straight in a cup or bowl, but others also enjoy it served in a sourdough breadbowl. Regardless, I love how the thick soup is so filling and hearty, especially with all those potato chunks floating around!    &nbs …
