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 bakin...

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 a...

Added 3 slices cooked, chopped turkey bacon & 1 Tablespoon of hot sauce (Tabasco). After baking, topped with Parmesan cheese - AWESOME!! Served as appetizer for pool party/cookout.

I had an extra can of clams that I wanted to use up. I was not sure about this recipe at first, but it was pretty good. The only changes I made was that I used half an onion, 1 tspn of fresh ore...
