I just want to double check I can replace the heavy cream and flour slurry with a cup of cheddar cheese, and would I put the cheese in when I would put in the slurry if I was using slurry?
Hmm, I'm not sure how that would turn out, but yes, I would add the cheese at the end when you would put in the slurry. Let me know how it turns out, sounds yummy!
Regardless of trying to figure out the amount of garlic powder that I needed or what I was whisking into the cream... this was the best freaking chowder I have ever eaten! I almost cried when my daughter and her boyfriend asked for some. Awesome soup, thank you!!
Thank you sooo much Viki 🙂
