Posted: Wednesday, December 03, 2008


M.Mc., of Douglas, writes, "Every holiday I prepare my Holiday Clam Dip for guests, and they always ask for more."

Thanks M.Mc., for sharing one of your favorites with our readers.

McHoliday Clam Dip

1 un-sliced round French bread 2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, room temperature 2 cans (6½-ounce each) chopped clams, drained, see note! 1 tablespoon minced green bell pepper 2 tablespoons minced red bell pepper

Note: Reserve the claim juice. You might need to add to the mixture to make proper consistency for dipping.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Slice top off bread (about ¼-inch from top).

Pull out chunks of bread to create a shell and reserve bread chunks.

In a large bowl, stir all ingredients together. Add a little clam juice if necessary to make mixture smooth and "dipable."

Scoop clam mixture into bread shell and put top crust on to cover mixture.

Wrap loosely in aluminum foil. Place on baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes.

Serve with reserved chunks of bread. Once all the bread chunks have been eaten, the bread shell can be consumed.

Serves about 12.


J., from Juneau, is still looking for that quiche recipe made from - she thinks - cheddar cheese soup.

L.R., of Juneau, responded, "To the reader who would like the quiche recipe using soup and Bisquick, I could not find one that used soup, but below is a recipe for Bisquick quiche from, and you could experiment with replacing part of the milk with soup, if the soup is liquid. If the soup is dried, packaged soup, then you could probably just use the regular amount of milk and add the dry soup mix as seasoning. Good Luck."

Thanks, L.R., for your response. Keep those recipes coming!
