The word "quahog" (or "quahaug" or "quohog") comes from the Narraganset word poqnauhock.

I am originally from Rhode Island and have played around with different recipies for stuffies for years. I am quite satisfied with these. They keep great in the freezer and make great gifts.

How to Make Rhode Island Stuffies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Steam quahogs just until shells start to open.
    Run the quahog meat through a meat grinder, food processor,
    or as I do, dice as fine as you can with your chefs knife.
    In a large bowl crush Ritz crackers and break bread into
    1- inch pieces. Add Worcestershire and lemon juice to melted butter.
    Add all ingredients to bread mixture and mix with your hands.
    Stuffing should be moist, yet stiff enough to hold the shape of a scoop.
    Add more clam juice or cracker crumbs as needed.

    Preheat oven to 375

    Scrub, rinse and drain the quahog shells. Using a small ice-cream scoop,
    or your hands fill the shells. Sprinkle with paprika. At this point the stuffies
    can be baked, or wrapped and frozen for later use.
    Bake for 35 minutes. Squirt with lemon and enjoy!
