You can also make this chowder Manhattan style and serve it in a bread bowl as well. manhattan clam chowder is a whole different recipe, though. The cream sauce is red and made with tomatoes. Personally? I prefer the New England version of clam chowder better. How about you?

I have always enjoyed eating new England Clam Chowder. It’s rich, creamy, and totally filling. Adding a bread bowl to the mix makes this delightful recipe even better.
