Steamed Clams with Bacon and Beer

READY IN: 30mins
Top Review by Gay Gilmore

I had some larger steamers that didn't do well in a lighter recipe last night, so I wanted something that would give them a fair amount of flavor and this did the job. Simple. Yummy. Threw a little chopped parsley on top.
