This is a fabulous hot and buttery appetizer before a festive meal. I can't claim this one as my own, though
. It came from a friend, and this recipe is one if her family's yummy traditions. Enjoy!
2 sleeves Ritz crackers, crushed finely
2 cans minced clams, including juice
1 large onion, minced
1 stick of butter, melted
2 T. fresh lemon juice
Salt and pepper, to taste
Oregano, to taste
Grated parmesan cheese, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cracker crumbs, clams/juice, onion, butter, lemon juice, and salt and pepper in an oven proof casserole dish. Sprinkle oregano and cheese on top, to taste. Bake 25-30 minutes until gently bubbling and is starting to brown on top. Serve with the other 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers.
