Super dip for Super Bowl
Creamy clam dip
8 ounce package cream cheese
1 small onion, minced
6 ounce can minced clams, liquid drained and reserved
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Chopped parsley to garnish
Place the cream cheese in a medium bowl. Bring to room temperature, until softened. Add about 2 tablespoons reserved clam juice, onion, drained clams and Worcestershire sauce. Blend completely, adding more clam juice, if necessary. Refrigerate several hours, or overnight, before serving. Garnish with chopped parsley. This dip is great with thick cut potato chips, crackers or vegetable sticks. Use reduced fat or fat-free cream cheese in this recipe; both work well.
How many servings? Who knows. There have never been leftovers when I have served this at a party.
