From The Galley:

Clams Casino

1 cup salted butter, 2 sticks
1- 6.5 ounce jar pimentos, drained
2 medium onions, chopped
4 stalks celery, chopped
1 ½ cups seasoned bread crumbs
5- 6.5 ounce cans a combination off chopped and minced clams, drained
½ cup grated Romano or Parmesan cheese


Melt butter over medium heat on stove or in microwave.

While butter melts, add pimentos, onions and celery to food processor until they
are well combined (they should make a wet mixture and be very finely chopped).

Add you melted butter, vegetable mixture clams, bread crumbs and cheese to a mixing bowl and stir until well combined.

Spoon the mixture into clam shells so that they slightly heap, and pat to smooth the tops.

Place clams on a sheet pan and freeze. Once solid transfer to zipper freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months.

When ready to cook, place on a lined sheet pan, filled side up. Broil on the middle rack (not the top) for
around 20 minutes watching them closely so they don’t burn.

Recipe Notes:
If broiling right away place them under the broiler for a good 10 minutes or until well browned on top and
cooked through- watch them carefully so they don’t burn.
