This recipe was in my mother's box of recipes. I moved her and my dad to a retirement home in June. There is a written message on top of this that says it is my Aunt Corryne's recipe. I am trying to save all her recipes online.

I too used smoked clams and added some garlic along with the (red) onion. Delicious on crackers toasted in the oven but also quite good after sitting a while to let the flavors develop and then spread at room temp on crackers.

YUMMERS! This was a GREAT appetizer! I used chopped smoked baby clams, neufchatel cheese and minced white onions. I spread it on 8 large whole wheat crackers. They were very flavorful and had a meaty texture. My crackers burnt a little at the edges because I didn't spread the topping all of the way. They still tasted good. I sprinkled paprika over the top of them when they were done. Made for Zaar tag.
