My Students Clam Chowder and Cookie Dough Cinnamon Rolls!

Here are the recipes for seriously the easiest and the freakin best clam chowder as well as cookie dough cinnamon rolls that you may ever see.  Plus they are alot of fun to make because you can tweak the tastes to your specific preferences.. For example the bacon in the chowder can be replaced with spicy sausage or thick cuts of ham or whatever.  And the cinnamon rolls could be chocolate themed or raisin and brown sugar themed or even roasted macadamia nut themed.  The point is that - No matter what kind of tastes make your tummy grumble, you're in for a treat and a half!

Bacon & Clam Chowder:




Soup Base:  Milk, chicken stalk, sugar, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and rosemary flakes..

 
  
Next:  Add the main ingredients into the boiling soup 
base, and stir well for about 20 minutes.  The soup will drastically thicken after the cheese and potatoes cook into it, so make sure you got your stirring gloves on!  The ingredients can vary depending on what your style is, but a good place to start is:  Chopped up crispy bacon, seasoned and roasted potato bites, small cubes of brie cheese, sauteed mushrooms, chopped green onion, and a can or two of diced clams.  And it helps a ton if you add in a packet of clam chowder mix.. (kinda cheating, but it helps alot!)


Dump everything in and as stated above - stir at a high heat for  roughly 20 minutes or until it turns to a rich and creamy chowder-like texture.

And there you have it ladies and gentleman..  Seriously, the chowder at the Santa Cruz wharf doesn't even compete with this shit!!  Haha


Pair with a tasty glass of wine, or it even goes really nicely with an ale!
Cheers & Enjoy!!!
