    I must admit I love clam chowder but I've found a few tricks to make it better. I start with Campbells New England clam chowder and I heat it up on the stove but then I add 2 strips of chopped cooked bacon, a dab of real butter. Once it's heated to boiling, I put it in a bowl and sprinkle on paprika. That's it. So Simple. I also find I like it on the stove rather than the microwave. Enjoy

    Only needs 1/8 thyme leaves per serving, otherwise its too strong. I love doubling and tripling this recipe for church and work, everyone loves it!
