This homemade clam dip tastes better than any pre-packaged version you can buy in the grocery store. And it's cheaper, too!
Clam Dip


  • 1 3-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 7-ounce can minced clams
  • 1/2 pint sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons onion juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


Drain the clams, reserving some of the liquid, and mash into the softened cream cheese. Add the remaining ingredients and blend well.
If a thinner dip is required, use 1 or 2 tablespoons of the reserved clam liquid to thin the mixture.
Serve with corn or potato chips.

    I tried this clam dip – not at all pleased with it.
    The lemon juice flavor was somewhat overwhelming – so if you try it – cut the lemon juice at least in half.
    I think I will look for another recipe before trying to tweak this one
