Baked Stuffed Clams Recipe by Doug Woodman
Stuffed Clams Ingredients
1 pound bacon
½ pound butter
12 large cloves garlic, minced
2 medium red onions, chopped
1 gallon minced clams
8 ounces Parmesan cheese
8 sleeves (30.2 ounces) Ritz crackers (crushed)
How to Make Stuffed Clams
Fry the bacon in a frying pan until crispy, and set aside to drain on paper towels. Discard bacon grease. In a large pan, over medium heat, melt the butter and sauté the garlic and onions until the onions are translucent. Add the clams and cook until tender (15 minutes). Crumble the bacon into the mixture, add grated cheese and stir for 1 minute.
Preheat the oven to 350˚F. Remove mixture from the heat and add the crushed crackers and stir until the mixture is thoroughly combined. Spoon the mixture into three aluminum pans (roughly 9” x 11”) and divide evenly into each pan. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes or until the tops are browned. Yields 40 four-ounce portions.
