“Yummy hot clam dip. The clams aren't that noticeable, even for someone like me who is not a clam person. Delicious served on crackers.”

This dip is great and I've made it several times. Even though I make a couple of changes and call it clams casino dip, the rest of the recipe is the same. First, I always double this recipe. I also don't use the cheese. Instead I add one of the cans of clams with it's juice so it's not to dry. Next I add 3 - 6 slices of raw bacon cut very small, (it's best to do this when the bacon's frozen), which cooks completely during the alloted time. I also use a small jar of pimentos, minced, for color. Hope you enjoy.



I've made this recipe many times and I love it. The only change I make is to add 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt or 1/4 teaspoon of garlic powder if I don't want the additional salt. Thanks for your recipe!



I made this today for a baby was the first time I made it. It went over real well, everyone liked it. I served it with Ritz Chips (they are sooo good)! This reminded me very much of Clams Casino or stuffed clams minus the clam shell. It also looked exactly like turkey stuffing! The only thing I plan to change is to reduce the was swimming in it. The butter made it moist, but a little clam juice in place of the butter may work. It took me a lot longer than 5 minutes to prep...(I can't even make scrambled eggs that fast!)...I hand minced my veggies, it took me about 25 minutes. Overall very good and I will be making this appetizer again!
