  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cans Chicken of the Sea minced clams, drained, reserving juices
  • 2-3 Tbsp prepared horseradish sauce
  • 1-2 Tbsp grated sweet onion
  • 1 tsp hot sauce (more, to taste) (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • sliced green onions, for garnish (optional)
  • minced fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees.  Spray a 24oz oven safe dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, add softened cream cheese and mash until smooth.  Add 6 slices bacon, clams, horseradish sauce, onion, hot sauce, salt, and pepper.  Stir to combine fully.  If mixture is too thick, add reserved clam juice 1/2 Tbsp at a time, until dip is at a dipping consistency.
  • Transfer dip to prepared dish and spread into even layer.  Place dish on a baking sheet (just in case it bubbles over), and bake 25-30 minutes, until hot, bubbly, and golden brown on top.
  • Sprinkle with remaining 2 slices of bacon, green onions and parsley.  Serve hot with crackers or toasted baguette slices.
