My Italian Mama makes the best stuffed clams I have ever had! I just feel like everyone should try these just once!!!! She finally made them at my house and taught me the recipe! I don’t think I will ever make them just like her… but I’m going to try! Here is the recipe below!!!!! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do! ❤️
Moms Stuffed Clams
Dozen cherry stone clams
1 loaf American bread
3 cloves crushed garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
Crushed red pepper 1 1/2 teaspoon
Oregano 1/2 teaspoon
Olive oil 2 tablespoons in mixture ( a little to coat inside of shells ) *
Steam clams until open in water. Take out of water let Cool. Save water. Clean clams. Using food processor or chopper add garlic, clams and blend. Remove and add to bowl. Next blend bread with spices and oil. Add this mixture to the clam and a garlic. If mixture seems dry add broth from clams. You want a wet consistency. Wash clam shells and dry with paper towel. Oil the inside of shells. Stuff shells with mixture. Bake at 375 for 30 -45 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Enjoy with a side salad!!!!! I love these with cocktail sauce!!!!!
