Serves 25 | Prep Time 15 | Cook Time 270


32 oz. cream cheese
1/2 cup sherry or white wine
3 - 7 oz. cans clams, minced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
dash salt and pepper
1/4 cup parmesan cheese
1 loaf shepherds bread

Drain claims, reserving 3/4 cup of the juice. Combine juice with cheese, sherry, lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parmesan cheese; beat until smooth.

Add clams.

Cut off top of shepherds bread. Hollow out bread, reserving the "insides" for dipping (tear into large chunks). Store pieces in ziploc plastic bag to keep soft and fresh until ready to serve.

Place hollowed shell on cookie sheet and bake 1 1/2 hours at 200 Deg to harden.

Then fill with clam dip, put previously cut top of bread back on, and wrap completely in foil. Bake 3 hours at 275 Deg.

Serve warm with torn chunks of bread.

The picture is of a spinach dip; I couldn't find one for clam dip - but you get the general idea :)
