Chewer, another great looking soup!!! Or Chowder I guess. Hmm, is Chowder a soup? Anyway, just when I was going to start my negative calorie diet here is this to look at! :~(  Oh, but wait... I think I do see some celery in there. This will fit right in with my new eating habits. :~)))

It's has gotten to the point that I can't look at his posts before I have eaten dinner or I will eat the hinges off the refrigerator.

Looks terrific. Except, of course, for the bacon.
 
And the plastic spoon.

Once an Irishman always an Irishman, once you added potatoes you had a winner.  Who threw the overalls in Mr Chubby's chowder ?  It's an Irish trick it's true..

Recipe??

Chicken broth
Chicken stock
bacon
chefs potatoes
celery diced small
cheddar cheese[ thanks Joe]
whole cream, 1/2 &1/2 will do
ground thyme
parsely
Roux made with bacon fat[thanks BillyB]
High simmer the bacon in 1/4 of the broth, rendering out much of the fat.
cube up the potatoes into various sizes, leave raw
take the broth after pouring some of the fat off for roux
add the remaining broth, potatoes, celery,  bacon broken up, bring to a simmer, add thyme and parsely to taste, add some stock to taste
as potatoes are getting done stir in cheese
make a roux to thicken after adding whole cream, again at a simmer
when done, ladle into a crock, top with more cheese, melt under the broiler, add additional bacon on top of the cheese
Takes maybe 20-25 minutes

Not all the time, I always have Chili, Cream of Crab, and some soup I dream up, the popular ones get recycled now and then.

Sometimes those terms can be confusing, but this is about the best explanation I've seen.  As you can see, the line has been blurred in recent years.

The broth is of course liquid, the stock is a condensed broth you buy in jars, McCormick is what we use here. We use it for flavoring many things including a little in our Mac and Cheese.
