This is quick and good! DO NOT ADD ANY SALT TO THIS UNTIL YOU TASTE IT!!! Condensed canned soups usually have quite a bit of salt in them. THEN, if it needs salt to suit your taste add it 1/8 tsp at a time and TASTE AFTER EACH ADDITION! The canned clams usually have a bunch of salt in them as well! Not to mention the saltiness of the bacon!
