Personal Notes:
This has been the "go to" recipe throughout our 30+ years of marriage whenever we have been trying to save money. It was taught to us by my maternal grandmother, Grandma Lydia Pritzkau. The recipe can be changed into clam or shrimp chowder by adding the desired cooked seafood and/or fried bacon bits.
