How to Make Mike's New England Clam Chowder & Homemade Croutons

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 22 steps you must follow to make Mike's New England Clam Chowder & Homemade Croutons in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Here's what you'll need. Flour not pictured.
  • Step 2
  • Fine chop your vegetables.
  • Step 3
  • Add butter, onions, celery, garlic, thyme, black pepper, salt, bay leaves and Old Bay to your pot.
  • Step 4
  • Stir well and simmer for 10 minutes until vegetables are slightly translucent. Stir regularly. You don't want to burn your garlic.
  • Step 5
  • Add your flour and stir well and often for 5 minutes. You're burning out that flour taste.
  • Step 6
  • Drain your clams and reserve all fluids. Set clams to the side.
  • Step 7
  • Add all fluids to your pot.
  • Step 8
  • Peel and chop potatoes into 1/2" cubes. Place them in pot. You're peeling and chopping your potatoes last since they will brown unless soaked in water.
  • Step 9
  • Simmer for 20 minutes or, until your potatoes have softened.
  • Step 10
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Step 11
  • At this point you'll have the option to thicken your chowder. You'll do it at this point exactly since as the potatoes soften, they will thicken the broth.
  • Step 12
  • To thicken: Add 2 tablespoons Corn Starch to 1 tablespoon water in a small bowl and mix well. Slowly add your starch mixture and allow pot to simmer back up. It'll thicken up quickly. Add additional starch to thicken more. I usually add the full 2 tablespoons but it's your call.
  • Step 13
  • Add your clams, stir and simmer 1 minute. No longer or you'll have extremely chewy clams.
  • Step 14
  • Pull pot from heat source and cover.
  • Step 15
  • For the croutons:
  • Step 16
  • Slice baguette bread into 1" cubes.
  • Step 17
  • Add 2 tablespoons butter and a dash of garlic oil or, couple dashes of garlic powder a pan and heat.
  • Step 18
  • Place croutons in heated butter. Fry for 3 minutes or, until crispy and coated.
  • Step 19
  • Fine chop parsley and add to pan. Mix quickly and well.
  • Step 20
  • Drain croutons on paper towels. Serve immediately.
  • Step 21
  • Garnish bowl with fresh parsley and place your croutons on top. Enjoy!
  • Step 22
  • Feel free to garnish with fresh clams as well. Just steam clams in a slight amount of water until they open. Discard any that don't open.
