Billman's Clam Casserole Recipe
Here's a delicious casserole with all the flavorful goodness of stuffed clams.
I have to say I thought this recipe had a GREAT flavor and I will definitely make it again. However, for me the recipe needed quite a bit of tweaking. First, this is called a casserole..this would not be what I would consider a casserole...like many other reviewers mentioned it really is a dip (a good one!) . Also there was no mention of what size casserole dish to use (I would use an 8x8 dish or maybe a pie plate). When I read the reviews there was mention of the dish being too salty. With clam juice, bacon and parmesan as ingredients of course it was going to be on the salty side...I omitted the 2 teaspoons of salt and glad I did...it was plenty salty enough without it! (not too salty). Also, after you add the clams and crumbled bacon, don't forget to remove the bay leaves. I will make this again but as a dip with Ritz crackers or in clam shells or over linguini with some olvie oil.
THIS IS MY RECIPE PLEASE READ : Hi all - I'm realizing from reviews that the instructions don't say what to do with the bacon and as a reviewer pointed out THE SALT AMOUNT IS TOO HIGH!! I don't know if that was not included in my original posting, or if something was lost in translation when the recipe was kitchen approved. Sorry!! You should add the crumbled bacon when you add the clams. As for the salt if should be a DASH OR TWO TO TASTE (you can taste the mixture before baking it and adjust) - NOT 2 TSP FOR THIS AMOUNT! SORRY!
I made this tonight for dinner and followed the recipe exactly as written..so exact that after I put it in the oven I realized it never told me when to put the bacon that you fry and set aside in!! LOL Had a great flavor and I will make again
This is the most fun you can have with your seafood. This recipe is a general guide: you decide what seafood to add. Serve with a nice white wine, turn on some music and have fun. Great outdoor meal.
A yummy casserole with the delicious flavor of New England style clam chowder. Easy to make and very hearty. A great weeknight supper.
So simple, but so good - steamed clams served in their own liquor. Serve with a crusty Italian bread, or over pasta.
A traditional New England clam bake that will feed a small army! You will have to plan ahead for this one. Lobsters, clams, mussels, potatoes, fish, corn, hot dogs, sausage, and onions all baked/steamed together in layers, in a hole you dig on the beach. Serve with lots of melted butter and bread for sopping up all the delicious juices.
Baked, stuffed clams - the best you have ever eaten!
