I've been searching for a good clam dip recipe that didn't have that preservative flavor like the ones you buy. This was absolutely delicious! Let this chill several hours before making any changes, it tastes great as is after being chilled. Read More

This is a super recipe, however I added 2 tablespoons of Kraft mayo, a few dashes of parsley flakes and deleted the hot pepper sauce. Everyone loved it!!! It was gone in minutes! My son who is four really liked it too! A++++++! Read More

This same recipe has been in our family for years. However, we add more drops of worcestershire than the recipe calls for, and more drops of Tobasco. Our recipe says a few drops, to taste. We probably use 5 drops tobasco and 8 drops of worcestershire. Wonderful for summer afternoons, especially if you're at the beach! Read More

My oldest son and I made this together and after we finished, we decided that it needed more clams. He added one more can without juice. We did use reduced fat cream cheese. We snacked on this at lunch with broccoli pieces, carrot "chips" and celery. The kids and I really liked it. Read More

Clam dip is loved by my family. Whipping the cream cheese first makes for a nice consistency. We ad a half cup of sour cream a tsp. of celery salt and omit the tobasco. Read More

This is just the recipe I was looking for. The other flavors don't overpower the clam flavor. I served it with Fritos and it was great! Read More

Pretty good but not great. I have made this and tried out all sorts of variations. So far the best I've found is to definitely add Worcestershire sauce. Let your wild side come out. Try a few fresh herbs. Add and taste. Then add more I tried a combination of fresh garlic chives onion chives and also some parsley. Add the lemon juice a few drops at a time until you get the taste you want. I don t remember the exact amounts but that s how you can make cooking fun. I also use yogurt to stretch the batch if need be. Plus it helps to blend all those garden herbs. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and it was way too bland. I started reading hte reviews and added parsley garlic powder a little lemon juice and sour cream to try and add some flavor. It's still just not edible and is going down the drain.:( The best homemade clam dip I've had was cream cheese 1/2 c sour cream and a hidden valley ranch seasoning packet. Super easy really decent.
