Ingredients

4 tablespoons diced onion

4 tablespoons diced red and green bell peppers

2 tablespoons diced celery

6 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons dry vermouth

1 teaspoon hot sauce

2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup bread crumbs

36 littleneck clams, shucked, juice and shells reserved

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

4 slices bacon

Directions

  1. Fry the onions, peppers, and celery in 1/2 tablespoon of the butter. Add vermouth and turn heat halfway down. Add the remaining butter and let melt. Add hot sauce, Worcestershire, and lemon juice. Add bread crumbs and 1/2 cup of reserved clam juice. Remove mixture from heat and cool.
  2. Place the stuffing mixture in the shells on top of each clam and sprinkle with parsley. Top with 3/4 slice of bacon. In a medium-hot cast iron pan or griddle pan, place clams, bacon side down, and cook until browned and bacon is crispy. Flip over and cook an additional 1 to 2 minutes.
