Everytime I serve this at a party, people rave over it. It's almost embarrassing how easy it is to put together.
  • Recipe
  • Hot Clam Dip
  • 1 8 oz. block cream cheese
  • 1 can minced clams, drained, with the juices reserved (I always buy Snow brand. If you don't like clams, you can substitute crab)
  • 1-2 T prepared horseradish sauce (I like Beaver brand hot horseradish sauce)
  • grated onion (optional)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • ¼-1/2 tsp Sriracha or other hot sauce (this just gives it a little kick)
  • Crackers for serving (we usually serve with Ritz crackers)
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a small ovenproof bowl, combine cream cheese, clams and horseradish and mash thoroughly until combined. Add sriracha to taste, a little grated onion if you're using (I only add this step when I have a half of an onion sitting around in the fridge), and juice from the can of clams until the dip is thinned to a dipping consistency. Season to taste.
  3. Place bowl in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the top is beginning to brown. Serve with crackers.
