Today's recipe is another appetizer that has been a part of our family holidays and parties for decades - Hot Clam Dip! It's simply the BEST! This dip is served every single Thanksgiving and goes lightening fast! This is an appetizer that people constantly ask if it's ready and hoard around the kitchen waiting for it to come out of the oven. I can't tell you how many mouths have been burned over the years because people won't wait for it to cool down!
What makes this dip even more awesome...it's so simple to make, only 4 ingredients!
Hot Clam Dip
- 2 8 oz blocks of Cream Cheese, softened at room temperature
- 2 6.5 oz cans of Minced Clams, drained
- 1 small Sweet Onion, chopped (approximately 3/4 to 1 cup)
- Juice from 1/2 Lemon
