Clam Dip

I'm finally back! I have been super swamped the last few months but hopefully I'll be able to be a little more consistent now. Anyhow, this recipe is one that my mom would always make for parties when I was young. It's ridiculously easy so it's a great go-to appetizer that you could just throw together anytime. I was randomly craving it today so I whipped some up in about 10 minutes. It's good stuff.

Clam Dip
2 boxes (8 oz. each) cream cheese
2 cans (6.5 oz. each) chopped clams, drain & reserve juice*
1 t. onion powder
1/2 t. garlic powder
black pepper

Combine all ingredients except clam juice. Mix well. Add enough clam juice (about 2-3 T.) to reach a nice, creamy consistency. Serve with potato chips.
*Minced clams work too, but I like the bigger chunks of clams.



  1. OMG! Thought I was the only one who LOVED! clam dip. Growing up my dad would make this just about every weekend for the family. When we get together as a family now, we still bring clam dip. Only now that we are grown and have kids of our own, the recipe has to be doubled and some times tripled. We prefer Ruffles cuz the ridges hold up better to more dip on the chip. LOL <3

    1. I know, right?!?!?! That's really funny because the same thing has happened in my family. Every time we have a get together, I have to remind my mom that we need a double batch of this stuff. So addicting! Thanks for visiting.
