Best soup I ever made! This rich and creamy soup was really outstanding, but I made two major changes to the recipe only because I didn't have the bacon and cream: I used whole milk and cornstarch as thickener in place of the heavy cream and used only one pan to prepare the chowder. Also, I began by sauteing diced turkey bacon instead of regular bacon, removing it from the pan and adding the country ham and sauteing it briefly in order to release some of the fat and juices into the pan. I then removed the ham, added a couple of tbsps. of butter and a little grapeseed oil to keep the butter from burning and sauteed the onions well, then added the leeks and garlic (didn't have the green onions on hand). Adding some of the broth next allows you to deglaze the pan and scrape up the yummy bits that have collected on the bottom of the pan and helps to create the savoriness that makes this soup a standout! I'm sure the original recipe is terrific, as well:)
