Ingredients
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 cups peeled and cubed potatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups half-and-half
  • 3 tablespoons butter

Directions

Place diced bacon in large stock pot over medium-high heat. Cook until almost crisp; add onions, and cook 5 minutes. Stir in water and potatoes, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, and cook uncovered for 15 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender. Add in the half-and-half, and the butter. Drain clams, reserving clam liquid. Stir the clams and 1/2 of the clam liquid into the soup. Cook for about 5 minutes, or until heated through. Do not allow the soup to boil.

Ladle into soup bowls and serve.
