Cape Cod Lobster Chowdah

Over the years the East Bay Lodge in Osterville was one of  the great places to have dinner on the Cape.  Many celebrities who performed at the Melody Tent in Hyannis or who were appearing in summer stock at some of the Cape’s great playhouses, could be spotted having a late dinner with fellow actors and friends at the East Bay Lodge during their stay on Cape Cod. It is difficult to believe that their menu selections did not include this Cape classic. So here is a recipe that may not be the same as the renowned East Bay Lodge’s Lobster Chowder but you can take credit for making it yourself and more importantly eating it yourself.

Cape Cod Lobster Chowdah
Serves 4

2 c. lobster meat
4 tbsp. butter
1 c. water
2 c. milk or half and half cream
2 c. diced raw potatoes
1 small onion, sliced
salt & ground pepper to taste

Simmer the lobster meat in the butter over low heat for 7 – 8 minutes. Combine potatoes, onion, water and boil until tender.  Add hot milk or half and half and lobster mixture.
