Clam shells are filled with a mixture of canned clams, bread cubes, butter, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, bottled hot pepper sauce, mustard and oregano, then baked.

  • Servings: Fills 12-15 clams depending on size of shells


¾ stick Melted Unsalted Butter
1 tsp Worchestershire Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Powder
½ tsp Dry Mustard
½ tsp Tobasco Sauce
1 tsp Oregano
1× 10 oz can Minced Clams, drain the clams, reserve the liquid
3 slices Toasted White Bread, cut into ½" cubes
12 Clam Shells
(you Can Usuallly Get These From a Fish Market...wash The
Shells Scrub Them Well, or go and buy shells in a store that carries specialty equipment
1 Tbsp Chopped Parsley


In a bowl mix the melted butter; add the seasonings. Add the drained clams and bread cubes; mix well. Add reserved clam liquid, if needed, to keep mixture moist.

Spoon mixture, nicely rounded, into each shell. Sprinkle the tops of the clams with the parsley. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Helpful Tips:

I usually make the clam mixture ahead of time (without baking them)and bake them just in time for company.
