I found this Clam Dip Recipe and I used it this weekend for my Mother’s Day picnic and everyone just loved it!!! It is from Diana Rattray, Your Guide to Southern U.S. Cuisine.
1 can (8 ounces) minced clams
1 clove garlic, cut in half
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
drop or two of Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
Drain clams, reserving 1/4 cup of the juice. Rub a medium serving bowl with the garlic halves. Add cream cheese; beat with fork until smooth. Mix in remaining ingredients and the reserved 1/4 cup of clam juice.
Blend well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving. Serve as a dip with crackers, chips, or vegetable dippers.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups of clam dip.
