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

2 (10-ounce) cans minced clams

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. Ladle into soup bowls and serve.
