Why I Love This Recipe

These are soooo tasty! Came from an old magazine clipping, I think it was from the 70's in BH&G

Ingredients You'll Need

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped green pepper
4 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. flour
1 Tbsp. parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. salt
Dash pepper, Worcestershire sauce, hot pepper sauce
1/2 cup crushed Ritz crackers (about 12 crackers)
1 7 1/2-oz. can mince clams
1 Tbsp. butter, melted


In a medium skillet, cook onion, celery, and green pepper in the 4 Tbsp. of butter until green pepper and onions are tender but not brown.

Stir in flour, cheese, and seasoning.

Add 1/4 cup of cracker crumbs, mix well.

Stir in the undrained clams; cook and stir until mixture thickens and bubbles.

Divide evenly among three or four large baking shells or individual baking dishes.

Combine remaining crumbs and butter; sprinkle atop clam mixture in each shell.

Bake in 350 degrees F. oven for 15 minutes or until heated through.
