  • Drain clams, reserving liquid. Cook and stir bacon in large saucepan on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels.
  • Add potatoes, onions and bell peppers to bacon drippings in pan; cook 4 to 5 min. or until crisp-tender, stirring frequently. Add bay leaf and reserved clam liquid; stir. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Cover; simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. Remove and discard bay leaf.
  • Add milk, white pepper, clams and bacon; mix well. Cook, uncovered, 3 to 5 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally. (Do not let soup come to boil.)

Serving Suggestion

Serve with raw vegetables and your favorite fresh fruit to round out the meal.


For a slightly smoother soup consistency, mash the cooked potatoes slightly with a potato masher before stirring in the milk, pepper, clams and bacon.


Substitute 1 cup celery slices for the chopped bell peppers.
