Dick and Red's Bacon Clam Dip

Dick and Red's Bacon Clam Dip


"Pieces of bacon really enhance this spicy clam dip, that has been a mainstay in the family for over forty years. Best served with ridge type potato chips. Serves around ten, although two can do a number - once you start!!"

  1. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir cream cheese until smooth. Stir one can of clams with juice into the cream cheese. Drain the other can, reserving the juice, and stir those clams in as well. Mix in the hot pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice. Stir in crumbled bacon. Cover and refrigerate dip and reserved clam juice for one hour.
  3. Remove dip from the refrigerator, and stir in just enough of the reserved clam juice to make the dip soft enough to dip a chip into.


  • Note
  • I like to freeze leftover juice, accumulating over a period of time, to use when making clam chowder.

This is the best clam dip I have ever had. Once I start eating it I can not stop.

I never cared for clam dip until I had this, it is by far the best clam dip I have ever tasted. When I start eating it I can not stop.

Bland and tasteless. Tried to pep it up with more tobasco, horseradish and garlic but ended up tossing the mix.

Great tasting! I served it at a family function and it was gone in minutes. This was very flavorful, and it will be served again and again....thank you for submitting it.

I made this dip (added some green onions) and took it to a neighborhood social. I liked it, but at the end of the evening it was hardly touched. Party-goers finished up the crab dip, spinach d...

Great recipie! I have made this dip for several events. It was a hit every time.

great receipe, but i would back off a few slices of bacon, if you want more clam taste then bacon taste.

The texture of the canned clams kind of creeped me out, so next time I will use the food processor to blend it smooth. Great flavor, I will make this again.

Very good dip recipe! Everyone asked for the recipe.
