Potato chowder is the perfect meal for a cold or rainy day. It warms you up nicely and leaves you feeling satisfied without being too full. It’s pretty versatile too. You can garnish or top it with a huge variety of toppings, just like a baked potato. We used cheese, green onion, sour cream and bacon this time but you can choose any toppings you like.

For our recipe we went with grated potatoes since that would cook faster and because I like the texture it creates better. You can also cube the potatoes, which is a more traditional way of doing it.
