There is a brand of frozen

There is a brand of frozen clams casino sold around here, made by 'Dave's Locker'. This recipe sounds just like them, with bacon, onion, green pepper, and bread crumbs, and of course clams. I can't wait to make these.

Some people don't like clams. Substitute 'krab'? Or real crab, or maybe shrimp?

Those are good suggestions.

I see there's 24 but what's

I see there's 24 but what's the portion size? / How many people does it serve?

Do you really have to ask??

Do you really have to ask?? it serves as many as you hand out. One for 24 people. Two for 12 people. Three for 8 people. In my case, I'm the only one who would eat them, so I get all 24!
