Clam Stuffing Bake Recipe

It seemed like Mom was always standing at her old black stove, coming up with recipes. This was one of the oldtime favorites. I loved stuffed clams any time of the year. I buy them fresh when in season and save the shells. Then, when I can't buy them fresh, I use canned. —Lillian Butler Stratford, Connecticut

"Sorry but this left me dissapointed. Couldn't get the clam taste maybe use 2 cans and the stuffing was mushy. I was thinking that it would be similar to Clams Casino but the fell short."
