Clam Dip

Every holiday my mother made her famous

It was so tasty, it was the only thing we ate on
New Year's Day while playing family games.

Mom's Famous Clam Dip

1  8 oz. block of cream cheese
1 can minced clams & the clam juice
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbs. Worcestershire Sauce

Open the can of minced clams.
Leave the lid on and drain the
clam juice into a bowl
and set aside.

In a medium mixing bowl,
beat together the cream cheese, garlic powder
and Worcestershire Sauce.

Add clam juice until you get the dip thickness you prefer.
I usually add about half the clam juice.

Beat until smooth.

Stir in the minced clams with a spoon.

Best when refrigerated for
at least one hour to meld flavors.

Serve with wavy potato chips

People will plant themselves by this dip
and it will be GONE!

I have to make FOUR-times the recipe
at Christmas and New Year's.

  4. My family always serves "Bugles" with this dip. Their corn meal base is very complimentary. We've also dipped veggies in it-- less guilt!
