Directions

Heat the oil in a large soup pot over a medium-high heat. Add the Canadian bacon, onions and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 6 minutes. Add the potatoes, clams, clam juice, thyme and water, to cover. Bring to a boil, and simmer until potatoes are soft, about 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

* Can use clams and clam juice from 2 (1-pound) containers of frozen chopped clams in natural juice, thawed.

    Made it tonight and my wife loved it. A little variation I made was I fried 4 pieces of center cut bacon, crumbled it to save for garnish and saved half a tablespoon of the grease to sauté the vegetables. I added one tablespoon of olive oil instead of two. I did use old bay like the previous rater and I used minced canned clams. Delicious!

    Simple to make and this one will surely please everyone. My personal taste is that i added more chopped clams and a little Old Bay Seasoning!
