Easy Clam Chowder for Two!!

Guess we are waaaay past "Empty Nest Syndrome" here and have moved onto finding some really easy and quick but good suppers for two.  You know what I mean.  Really don't want the mess but something really tasty and filling, satisfying.  This Clam Chowder always works here.  In fact Brian went back and finished  the pot last night.  You can easily make this for more.

Here is how I make it for two:
1 can minced clams
6 slices bacon diced
1 medium onion diced
1/2 lemon squeeze for the juice
2 cans cream of potato soup or about 3 cups leftover potato soup
2-3 C. milk

Dice the uncooked bacon and toss it into a heavy bottomed 2 qt. sauce pan and cook until it is about half done and add the diced onion.  Continue cooking until the bacon is brown and the onion is starting to be well browned around it's edges.

The aroma will be almost heaven!!

Reduce the heat to medium low.  Add the clams and it's liquid and the lemon juice.  Add the type of potato you are using the salt and pepper.  If you are using canned potato soup add the milk and stir.  If using your own potato soup and and adjust with enough milk to reach the desired consistency. Serve in large mugs or bowls steaming hot.  It is great with crusty bread and when served in bread bowls it is truly out of this world!!
