What Do I Need To Make Cream Cheese Clam Dip?

  1. cream cheese
  2. canned minced clams
  3. Worchershire sauce
  4. dried parsley
  5. green onions
  6. season salt
  7. lemon juice

How Do You Make Cream Cheese Clam Dip?

Start by making fresh bread. I used this recipe, Easy French Bread (it really is super easy) which makes  two bread bowls. Or use one loaf to cradle the dip and the second loaf as extra bread pieces. You can also buy a nice roundish loaf of store bought french bread or sourdough.

For The Dip:

  1. Whip cream cheese with a stand mixer until it is softened.
  2. Add in remaining ingredients to the creamed cream cheese.
  3. Mix until smooth.
  4. Transfer to your bread bowl, cover with foil, and bake.  Serve with desired dippers.

Pro Tip- if you want the clams to be undetectable put them in a blender with the clam juice the recipe calls for and pulse a couple of times.

How Long Does Cream Cheese Clam Dip Last?

This dip will keep in the fridge, in an airtight container, for 3-4 days.  That is – if it isn’t eaten up before that!

What Should I Serve With This Dip?

Traditionally, clam dip is served with:

  • potato chips
  • crackers
  • bread
  • fresh veggies
