    Oolala's Note:

    This is my sister in law's recipe. It's like a clam pie or a giant baked clam served warm with crackers (I like Ritz for this). It could be prepared, up until the baking, a day in advance. Just put it in the refrigerator and bake when ready the next day! If you make it and freeze it for the future, just thaw and reheat. This is a family favorite and a crowd pleaser when I make it for guests - Enjoy! PS-I like it with 2 cans of chopped clams too! You get bigger clam pieces that way.

      This recipe is fantastic! It is such a hit, there won't be a drop left. I have been asked to make it over and over again. Terrific on thin slices of good French bread instead of crackers too. Garnish with fresh lemon.

      I was hungry for clam dip but didn't have any cream cheese. This was a very different dip with the breadcrumbs as the base! I'll bet it would be a great stuffing for mushrooms. Yummy, thanks!
