Baked Clams

By: Katie Jasiewicz

  • Yield:

    24 Clams


24 littleneck clams
1 stick salted butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup Italian bread crumbs
Fresh parsley & grated Pecorino Romano Cheese for garnish


  1. Rinse clams in hot bowl of water so the shells open (this will take 3-5 minutes). Then pry open the shell with a knife and pop off one side of the shell*.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  3. In a Circulon® skillet, melt a stick of butter with 2 cloves of minced garlic. Cook on medium low heat, until garlic is soft and fragrant, about 10 minutes. Then add in the Italian style breadcrumbs and mix well. Stuff each clamshell with a generous scoop of breadcrumb mixture.
  4. Place each stuffed clamshell on a Circulon® baking sheet. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and the breadcrumbs on top of the clams are cracked looking (this means the clams are cooked). 
  5. Remove from the oven, garnish with fresh parsley and grated Pecorino Romano cheese, and serve immediately
