I modified this recipe so it was clams casino instead of stuffed clams. The only thing I did different was not take the clams out to chop them up. I put the mixture directly on top of the clams in the shell and baked it. I also used littleneck clams (it was all the store had). They came out very good. The only thing I will change the next time I make them is to decrease the amount of bread crumbs. Since the clams were not mixed in with the stuffing the pepper, bacon, and onion flavor was a little overpowered by the bread crumbs. This was a great recipe and I will definitely be making it again.

This is NOT a recipe for clams casino! This is a recipe for stuffed clams! Clams casino is a small clam topped with bacon and (a sprinkling of)breadcrumbs! Read More

This is a recipe as others said for stuffed clams. I used 24 small clams put them in their shell whole then topped with the mixture to make it more like clams casino. I only used about 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs as someone suggested and it turned out to be the perfect amount of topping for my clams. Also it took about 10 minutes for my clams to open in the oven. Very tasty though...my boyfriend gobbled them all up by the end of the night. Read More

I have made this twice and perfected it to my family's tastes. I changed two things. Rather than chop the clams and mix them in I simply loosened them from their shell and put the filling on top of them. I also cut the amount of bread crumbs down to about 1/3 cup. That said the flavors and spice mixture of this recipe are perfection! Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

Very tasty and fairly easy to make too! Next time I will only use 3/4 cup bread crumbs but overall this is a DELICIOUS recipe for clams casino. We baked our clams in muffin cups which reserved the juice and made the clams all the more tasty! Read More

Be warned use the larger clams (as directed). My seafood market only had fresh littleneck clams so we used those. Tasty but more bready than clammy. I did use the the noted amount of oil/butter and they were a little dry. I bet if we could have found larger clams the recipe would have been less dry as there would have been more natural juices. I'll try it again when I can find the larger fellas! Either way I recommend serving it with some hot sauce on the side! Read More

Very good. A half of a recipe was perfect for 18 Little Neck clams. I did not remove the clams. They sure didn't last long... Read More

This was very good. I halved the recipe. I used turkey bacon mixture of red yellow and green peppers and less breadcrumbs. Everything else as directed and it was really very good. I bought 2 dozen little neck clams and mixture was just right... Dripped lemon juice on just before cooking and just just after... Great Valentines Day Treat! Read More

I love this clams casino recipe but use less bread crumbs. My family likes lots of clams and prefers not to be filled up with the breading. Read More
