The way it should be done, Member bluedog873

People. Please. Clams Casino is quite a different item than stuffed clams. No bread. That's the way it should be. This recipe has astounded all that I've served it to. I am planning on making this again today. If you haven't already used it, do you and your guests and your family a favor and make it. Exactly to the recipe is the way to go. Even my friends who are allergic to shellfish have been tempted to try it >:-) Enjoy!
