"I've made clams casino many times and have always used either either homemade bread crumbs, crushed croutons or in a pinch seasoned prepackaged bread crumbs. I found the ritz crackers with the butter to be a fine variation. Thank you for that. I agree with Kitelady's post that Lea & Perrins worcestershire makes a dramatic improvement to the recipe (my words, not the gracious lady's) and as we like a little kick, I also add just a drop or so of tabasco sauce. The tabasco isn't actually hot per se used here, but the taste of the appetizer with it or without is immediately apparent. Thanks again for a great recipe."
"Five stars...only five stars? I've made Clams Casino hundreds of times and each time received very nice reviews..BUT this was the first time I was told "GREAT"! I followed your recipe to the letter but added a little Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce. What more can I say except to thank you for posting. The noise in the background is my family, begging for more."
