Great recipe!Here's the clam dip that I've been making since the 1980s. It's basically the same as the classic Kraft Foods recipe.
Now, would you mind sharing your clam dip recipe? I've been searching for years for the one my parents used to make in the 60's. Nothing so far comes even close, but of course I am battling memory....
STEVE'S CLAM DIP
Let the clam flavor dominate. Don't overdo competing ingredients. Add dash of your favorite hot pepper sauce. Substitute horseradish sauce for garlic.
2 (8-ounce) cans clam
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 teaspoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper, to taste
Drain clams, reserving 1/2 of the liquid.
Combine clams, reserved clam liquid, garlic, cream cheese, lemon juice, Worcester-shire sauce and seasonings; mix until well blended.
Chill 2 hours before serving to blend flavors. Serve with potato chips, crackers or raw vegetables. Makes about 1 quart.
