    Oolala's Note:

    I love clams! These sound good since you steam them first and them remove them from the shell, make a topping and put them back into the shell with the butter/garlic/crumb topping and broil. I love when the clam is left whole and not chopped (they stay juicy) but it is a personal preference and you could chop them, especially if you can't get fresh small clams.

      These were very easy to prepare and were AWESOME ! I'm not one to change a recipe until I try it once, but I did spoon small amount of the clam juice on the clams after steaming them before putting topping on. FYI topping was barely enough for 2 doz little necks so if your making any more then that I recomend doubling topping. Thanks for recipe will be making again real soon !

      This was a big hit. We used gluten free Italian style breadcrumbs and it was still outstanding. They disappeared very quickly. Thank you.

      These are fabulous!! I had fresh caught clams, and it turned out great. I used basil instead of parsley, but otherwise made as directed. Thanks!
