Skippers Clam Chowder Recipe is a family-style dish made from potluck style food. In this recipe, you will get to use your favourite potluck recipe, but you will attempt to get a little more creative by adding in some fresh ingredients from the local farmers market. As with all potluck recipes, you will have to wait for the ingredients to slowly cook in the boiling water in your slow cooker in order to get that rich and creamy chowder, and the results will vary depending on what kind of fresh ingredients you decide to add.

This recipe is perfect for the holidays, especially for the Potluck Potluck Dinner! This is also a very easy dish to make and makes a great appetizer or main course dish. I served this chowder along with some warmed corn on the cob. It was very tasty and easy to make.

A simple and wholesome bowl of clam chowder is a tradition at many family gatherings. It’s a hearty and mouth-watering Alternative to the more expensive restaurant clam chowder. This recipe is easy and doesn’t take long to prepare. When it’s time for dinner, just pull the pints from the refrigerator, chop up the clams into small pieces, and blend them with broth. Serve this warm with rolls or toast.

  • Russet potatoes, (peeled and cut into 1/2 inch chunks 2), 1 cup
  • Butter, 3 tablespoon
  • Bacon (finely chopped), 4 slices 
  • Yellow onions (finely chopped) , 2 cups 
  • Celery (finely chopped), 3 stalks

Step 1

Start by preparing the ingredients! Expert chefs may ignore this tip. Not that I’m an expert chef, but I’m a bit slow. I cannot start the chowder unless I prepare the ingredients.

Step 2

Fill a medium saucepan with bottled clam juice, and place it over medium heat. Add the potatoes and allow them to soften. Simmer the potatoes until they are tender. This will not take more than ten minutes. Take the potatoes off the heat and set them aside. 

Step 3

Melt the butter in another saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped bacon and cook for 8-10 minutes until the bacon pieces are browned. 

Step 4

Then mix in finely chopped yellow onion, finely chopped celery, and minced garlic cloves. Sauté for 6 minutes or until the vegetables are soft. 

Step 5

Stir in the all-purpose flour, and continue to cook for 2 minutes. Be careful not to brown the flour. 

Step 6

Stir in the clam juice, the potato mixture, half and half, hickory liquid smoke salt, and tabasco sauce. Keep the skipper cape cod simmering until the flavours blend, stirring occasionally. 

Step 7

Lastly, season with black pepper and kosher salt to taste. After simmering for 10 minutes, skippers chowder is ready to eat.
