And now for the easiest clam chowder recipe on earth. My mom has been making this for years. And it’s like a bowl of comfort. You know what I mean?

It’s legit 20 minutes + ready to serve. Pile on some toppings to make this soup fancy AF! Here I added fresh crab + crumbled bacon. GAME CHANGER! But, you don’t have to do that to have a bomb bowl of soup.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1/2 lb bacon (about 8 slices), chopped
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 cup celery, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cups half + half
  • 8 oz. bottle clam juice
  • 32 oz. bag diced frozen hash browns
  • 2 (6.5 oz.) cans chopped clams
  • salt + pepper

Here’s what you’ll do:

In a large pot, cook bacon till brown + crispy. Drain all but about 1 tablespoon of fat.

To the pot, add onion + celery + garlic. Cook for about 2 minutes.

Melt butter then stir in flour. Whisk until flour is lightly browned. About 1-2 minutes.

Gradually whisk in the half + half. Allow to come to a simmer + thicken.

Stir in clam juice + hash browns. Add water till potatoes are submerged. Bring to a boil, then reduce + simmer for 15 minutes.

Once potatoes are softened, add chopped clams with the juice. Then season with salt + pepper.

When ready to serve, pile on all your favorite toppings. I love oyster crackers + hot sauce + parsley. When I’m feeling fancy we add fresh crab + bacon. You really can’t go wrong with any toppings.


Remember, you can now print the recipe.  “Pin” to your Pinterest board for safe keeping.  If you decide to give it a shot, pretty please – tag me.  Text me.  I can’t wait to hear what you think!!  100% makes my day ♥
