Creamy Clam Dip is a delicious dip to serve guest for any event! Christmas appetizers, New Years Eve, even Game day! Full of clams and flavor, these are delicious served up with a vegetable platter or your favorite cracker.
I wanted to make a clam dip to take to our Christmas Party at work. I've been doing so much baking (and actually not keeping any of it!) that I didn't have it in me to make much but a dip and my Mom's Cheese Ball to take to the party.
I went on a search. I did food blog search because I would have liked to find a recipe for a clam dip from a fellow blogger but came up pretty short. There are not many out there. I found a few that were baked but I was feeling too lazy to even do that! I didn't want to have to worry about having to heat something up before the party (too much work)! So, I found a recipe over at allrecipes that I adjusted slightly to my own taste. To top it off, it was a clam dip that I didn't have to bake and it turned creamy good!

I love clam dip. This looks so rich and creamy - my kind of dip.
Reading this brings back fond memories of when I was a teenager, and my older cousin Terry would whip up clam dip. She'd serve it with those ruffled potato chips, and her hubby would pop open some good wine. Then, we'd all settle in for an evening of watching movies from Blockbuster. Thanks for bringing back those fun memories.

Yippee! That is the one my mother used to make, too. I think it's the best one out there. 🙂 Sometimes I add just a little minced green onion/scallion to the mix, but it's GREAT just plain.
I haven't made it in quite a while, thanks for the memory jog! ~m.
I've made this exact clam dip long before Martha ever became known. Always a huge hit at office parties. And of course, I eat way too much of it. lol
Sounds yummy! I will have to make this sometime for Randy.
Look the clam dip in our house. I usually serve it every Christmas Day. Can't wait for that day and all the goodies we get to eat!
I have not had clam dip in years. You know I have also been doing a lot of baking lately! I think I am so happy that I can do it finally that I am going overboard! I will go back to my roots soon, cooking here I come!

Sounds really yummy! I love clams 🙂
You have been doing a lot of baking, of some very beautiful goodies! I don't think I've ever had clam dip, this looks quick and easy to make. I bet it had a great flavor after sitting over night.
Looks great! I've never tried this before...I may have to try it some time 🙂
Clam dip is one of my comfort foods. Mine's close to this, except I add about 1/2 t (or more) grated horseradish, 1 T of lemon juice, and leave out the pepper sauce. A little added sour cream is nice, too.
I don't eat seafood, but it looks tasty! Nathan would love this!
Oh my goodness, this is the dip my mother always, always ALWAYS made, I love it and it was always the first thing to go!
