  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until browned but still tender. Drain and cut each slice into 8 pieces. Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add clams and cook for 15 to 20 seconds or until open; drain and rinse.

  • Preheat the broiler.

  • Arrange clams on a medium baking sheet. Top each with 1 piece of bacon. Distribute equal portions of the butter mixture onto each clam atop the bacon.

  • Checking often to avoid burning, broil the clams 2 to 3 minutes, until the butter mixture has melted and bacon is crisp.

This was excellent. I cut corners by using chopped clams in a 6.5 oz can. This made about 14 clams. (I saved the shells from the restaurant cleaned and boiled them so I could do it this way). Thanks for the recipe.

Directions are written in a confused way, says to put the bacon on clam and top with butter, but shouldn't it be the other way around? Whatever. What I did was fry the bacon in advance and chop it and add it to the butter mixture, I added a pinch of cayenne, and some minced garlic. so then all I had to do was put the butter mixture on clam and broil. Tastes good no matter what.
