Easy Clam Chowder in Toasted Bread Bowls

I’m a huge fan of semi-homemade recipes. You don’t have to cook everything 100% from scratch to give your family a tasty, satisfying meal. Life is too short to spend every waking moment in the kitchen.

Sandra Lee is of course the queen of semi-homemade recipes. I picked up a few of her cookbooks, and had to give her New England Clam Chowder a try. As usual, I didn’t have all the ingredients in my pantry for the recipe as written, so I put my own spin on things.

This recipe is totally a keeper!
