Minced clams and cream cheese, along with Tabasco and lemon juice, make this a flavorful dip.


  • 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
  • pinch pepper


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.

I can remember my Parents having this dip at their parties! It has not changed much! I put a twist on it, i dont like the taste of clams so I blended the dip in a food processor to make it smooth, i added a little mayo and a little extra lemon juice. I dont remember the Garlic back then you can omit it if you want make this to YOUR taste! :)
