This is what I made last night…i wanted stuffing baked clams…
and my guy picked up a cooked chicken…we are still recuperating
from Covid…so, I’ve been cooking very little as of late…

The head guy Picked up a chicken at BJ’s I served it with cole slaw
and baked clams/stuffing style. This type of clams is a combo of stuffing
and baked clams…in Rhode Island it’s called stuffers…I like to put chopped
up shrimp in my baked clams as well…and I did so here as well.

Baked clams made with homemade stove top stuffing.
I made this with leftover stuffing after thanksgiving and made
them again today…
6 slices of white bread torn up
1/2 to 2/3 cup of chicken broth
12 shrimp ( 31 - 40 size)
About 1/3 cup chopped onion
1 stalk celery chopped.
About 2 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
2 -3 tablespoons pecorino Romano grating cheese.
Seasoning: 1 tsp. thyme, 1/2 tsp. rubbed sage, 2 tbsp. chopped parsley, pinch salt. black pepper, a couple pinches of garlic powder.
1 can chopped clams with broth…- reserve clams for the end.
Extra virgin Olive oil and butter
Moisten bread with chicken broth, add seasonings and celery and onion.
and grating cheese and …Put about 1 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of butter in skillet
and fry bread mixture until browned add then add the clam broth, then push it all aside and put a little more Olive oil in the skillet and fry the chopped shrimp until they are cooked and then mix the Cooked shrimp in with the bread mixture …at this time add the breadcrumbs…remove from heat and lastly mix in the chopped clams…fill shells and drizzle with more olive oil and dot with butter.
Put in oven at 375° for about 15 -20 minutes. ,
Have half of the chicken left over…maybe, chicken pot pie is in our future! 😀

pics to follow…it made 20 large clams…I save my clam shells and use them over and over…after hand washing them, I run them through the dishwasher.

I can't get good clams most of the time in Ohio! One of my girls loves a pot of mussels. A bag of mussels at the Kroger fish market is literally twice the price I paid when we lived in Virginia.
Can you get canned clams? That’s what I use, one can of Snows 6.5 oz of chopped clams.
I also used it for linguini and clam sauce.

Yeah go with the canned clams if nothing else. I've made linguini with a clam sauce using canned clams. Clams aren't easily available here except in a can.

I love seafood, but clams aren't served around here much. What are they like?
Look for the canned baby clams at Walmart there are various brands, even a pharmacy such as Walgreens or CVS maybe Dollar Tree, Dollar General or Family Dollar.
