I've been trying to copy my Dad's version of Clam Casino to no avail (even when I have him on the phone) So I gave it up and made up my own; guess what? They're BETTER!

This was a great recipe that was very easy to make. I would use a little less oregano next time for my own tastes. We ate them as a lunch and I will be making them again!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute the first six ingredients in olive oil until softened but not browned.
  2. Steam clams in batches and remove as they JUST BEGIN TO OPEN. Allow to cool and reserve clam broth.
  3. Remove clams from shells and save half of each shell.
  4. Process clams with a little broth in a food processor until a little chunky.
  5. Combine clams with first six ingredients and add 1 cup of mixed cheeses, mix well.
  6. Add breadcrumbs, mixing completely until it holds together like a stuffing; if it seems a little dry add more clam broth.
  7. Fill clam shells with this mixture and bake at 350 degrees until golden brown.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy!
