Recipe by Gloria Troise Brown Frischmann This is NOT for the dieters LOL and I'll use less butter. I've had a friend use this recipe on a family 'cook-off" and she won first prize!
- 2 dozen littleneck clams
- 1 cup butter
- 1 lb bacon
- 1 onion
- 1 1⁄2 green bell peppers
- 1 red bell pepper
- Tabasco sauce
- plain breadcrumbs
- Steam clams, remove and chop. Wash the shells and let them dry.
- Slice bacon into small pieces and brown. Drain and set aside. Remove bacon fat and melt butter. Add onions (until translucent) and peppers. Add seasoned salt and Tabasco to taste.
- Remove from heat add bacon and clams. Slowly add bread crumbs until the butter is incorporated. Try not to use a lot of bread crumb.
- Stuff the clam shells. Add some lemon juice on each and broil 15 minutes (top will brown).
