Directions

  1. Cook and stir bacon in a soup pot over medium heat until bacon is browned and crisp, about 8 minutes. Stir onion into bacon and cook, stirring often, until onion is translucent, about 5 more minutes.
  2. Pour water into bacon mixture and stir in potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until potatoes are tender, about 10 minutes. Place cod fillets into simmering mixture and cook until fish is opaque and flakes easily, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir milk, evaporated milk, butter, salt, and black pepper into pot. Bring soup to a boil; remove from heat and serve.

Used evaporated milk and some cream and no milk. Heated on very low flame after adding the cream.

Great soup! Was in a hurry so I used precooked bacon and 3 cups diced frozen potatoes. I also used chicken stock in place of the water and added 2 Tbsp flour to pot after onions were soft to help thicken. Is it possible Joshcoctions may have used sweetened condensed milk instead of evaporated??? Our chowder wasn't sweet and I know I always have to read the label to make sure I'm grabbing the right one! :)

Did recipe as written except removed the condensed milk, it was fantastic without, and used some frozen shredded potatoes (only had one whole potato). Used leftover white fish of sorts, and made for a great meal out of something I hate eating (leftover fish...yuk). Everyone (1 yr old, 2 yr old, 13 yr. old, 35 yr olds) liked it. No where in this recipe was there sweetness to it....joshcoctions used sweetened condensed milk...bet you never do that again.

I made this exactly as written and it was cloyingly sweet. I ended up straining all the broth and tried making it again without the evaporated milk. It made slightly better but was still inedible.
