Clam Chowder

1/2 pound bacon cut into pieces
1 medium onion
Canned clams (3 or 4 if using small cans) Be sure to retain clam liquid
4 or 5 potatoes cut into bite size chunks
1 package frozen corn
Half and Half

Fry bacon pieces. When almost cooked, add chopped onion and saute
Drain off bacon grease (or not depending on how many calories you want to remove)
Add clams with their juices
Add chopped potatoes and corn
Bring to a boil. Put a lid on the pot and turn off the burner. Allow the potatoes and corn to cooked in hot liquid. By doing this the potatoes will not get mushy. When potatoes are fork tender add half and half and milk. Again the amount of half and half depends on the calories. Add enough milk to make the consistency you like. Add fresh ground pepper. Reheat and enjoy!!!
