"While working at a restaurant, I needed a better recipe for baked clams. This is the what I devised. They went over very well. This can also be used as a spread on crackers."

Great recipe. Didn't really make any changes. The recipe called for an onion. I like onions so I used a larger onion. I didn't use a full two tbs of butter topping the ramikins prior to baking as I like to watch the fat and calories. I'm sure a full two tbs of butter would taste great though. This is particularly a great recipe using canned clams and you need a quickie dish. I will definitely make this again.

I hate to leave a bad review but my husband and I did not care for this. Too much onion, too many herbs and not enough clams. I don't know how this could possibly yield 4 servings even as an appetizer.


This was a good way to use up the can of chopped clams I had. My husband, who swore the only clams he likes are when they're in clam chowder, smelled it cooking and stole a bite or two when it was done. He said it was good. Instead of using oil, I chopped up a piece of thick pepper bacon and then fried 1/4 of an onion (chopped) with it. I just couldn't see adding a whole onion to that little can of clams. Also, since I'm on a low-carb diet, I used parmesan cheese instead of bread crumbs. I didn't have any fresh garlic so I used powdered (which just isn't the same!) I also used rosemary instead of thyme 'cause that's all I had. It only filled two ramekins, but that may be because I didn't use the amount of onion called for, I drained some of the clam juice, and I only used 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese for the bread crumbs. It was pretty good, but I don't see myself making it again unless I happen to have chopped clams on hand.
