Aunt Marjorie's Clam Dip

Susan Feliciano


Here is another of our old family recipes. The cooks have gone on, but their memories remain in the food they so lovingly prepared for us when we were young.
As children, we always loved visiting Aunt Marjorie and Uncle Luther, my father's brother. They lived on a small farm, and had so many different kinds of fowl. She used to cook with tiny little Bantam Hen eggs - I think it took 3 of those to equal one hen's egg.
Oh, the memories!

How to Make Aunt Marjorie's Clam Dip


  1. Soften cream cheese to room temperature. Drain clams and add 2 tablespoons clam juice to the cream cheese.
  2. Mix cream cheese, clams, tabasco sauce, salt & pepper, onion, and lemon juice until well blended. Place in serving dish and chill. May sprinkle with chopped chives if desired.
  3. This is very good with crackers or celery sticks. We used to eat it on those little flavored crackers called "Chicken in a Biscuit." Do they still make those?
