"While working at a restaurant, I needed a better recipe for baked clams. This is the what I devised. They went over very well. This can also be used as a spread on crackers." — WAYNE14

1 (6.5 ounce) can
minced clams, with juice
seasoned bread crumbs
Great recipe. Didn't really make any changes. The recipe called for an onion. I like onions so I used a larger onion. I didn't use a full two tbs of butter topping the ramikins prior to baking as I like to watch the fat and calories. I'm sure a full two tbs of butter would taste great though. This is particularly a great recipe using canned clams and you need a quickie dish. I will definitely make this again.
I hate to leave a bad review but my husband and I did not care for this. Too much onion, too many herbs and not enough clams. I don't know how this could possibly yield 4 servings even as an appetizer.
This was a good way to use up the can of chopped clams I had. My husband, who swore the only clams he likes are when they're in clam chowder, smelled it cooking and stole a bite or two when it was done. He said it was good. Instead of using oil, I chopped up a piece of thick pepper bacon and then fried 1/4 of an onion (chopped) with it. I just couldn't see adding a whole onion to that little can of clams. Also, since I'm on a low-carb diet, I used parmesan cheese instead of bread crumbs. I didn't have any fresh garlic so I used powdered (which just isn't the same!) I also used rosemary instead of thyme 'cause that's all I had. It only filled two ramekins, but that may be because I didn't use the amount of onion called for, I drained some of the clam juice, and I only used 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese for the bread crumbs. It was pretty good, but I don't see myself making it again unless I happen to have chopped clams on hand.
Very good. I don't like thyme, so I omitted that. Next time I would used 1/2 an onion, a whole onion was just a little too much. And I would probably pick up some clam shells and stuff them. This was a fast and easy recipe, canned clams are on sale often, good value.
This is a great recipe! I baked it in one dish though and served it with sea salt melba toast rounds. I always make too many appetizers, so I had some leftovers that I used to stuff button mushrooms and baked at 350 for about 15 minutes....YUM!!!!!
Added 3 slices cooked, chopped turkey bacon & 1 Tablespoon of hot sauce (Tabasco). After baking, topped with Parmesan cheese - AWESOME!! Served as appetizer for pool party/cookout.
Serving size was insanely tiny. The taste was good, but the proportion of bread crumbs to clams was way off. If I were to do this again, I'd halve the bread crumbs and triple the clams. I might also make patties and bake them rather than using the ramekins.
Very easy and even more tasty. Based on other reviews, I cut the onions down to 1/2 cup. Made these for my husband as an appetizer while he was grilling and he loved them.
