2 - 3 dozen little neck clams out of shells, save shells and juice
Bread crumbs to top them with
Garlic, minced to sprinkle on
Parsley to sprinkle on
Grated cheese to sprinkle on
Dried oregano to sprinkle on
1 1/2 sticks butter, melted
Enough uncooked bacon cut in to little pieces to
place on top of each clam
Fresh lemons, cut in wedges

  • Arrange the shells in a baking pan, and place loose clams in shells. If clams are large, you can cut them in half.
  • Pour melted butter over the clams and then sprinkle garlic, parsley, grated cheese, oregano and bread crumbs on each one.
  • Lastly, place a piece of bacon on the very top.
  • Place in broiler until bacon is cooked and bread crumbs are browned. Serve hot.
