Crockpot dinners are a must in our family, at least a few nights a week. This chowder was a nice change from "clam chowder". It's very rich. Serving it with bread would have been smarter. Also, I cooked the bacon, and added it at the same time as everything else instead of waiting till the end of the cook time like the directions said. It turned out just fine.
