This has been a family recipe for years, always served on New Year's Eve. I love this dip and how it's so different from the kinds you can buy in the store.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, and mix for a few seconds.
  2. Add sour cream and mix well, until no chunks remain. Scrape down sides and bottom of bowl and mix well again.
  3. Add clam juice and Worcestershire sauce, and mix slowly to avoid splashing, until fully incorporating. Dip will be on the thin side.
  4. Add salt and black pepper, and mix well.
  5. Add clams and mix just to combine.
  6. Store in a container and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving. Dip will thicken in refrigerator. Serve with ridged potato chips.

this is the clam dip I grew up with however we never used the Worcestershire sauce at all. Love it its the best ever. put in refrigerator for a few hours and it will thicken up. I have been making this recipe for sixty years. If you use the Worcestershire try cutting back to maybe one teaspoon.
