Dad’s Clam Dip with Dill

I’m going to talk as about my Dad a bit. I got my ability to throw together a great dish from him. He was very good at just putting ingredients together and coming up with something that tasted amazing. He didn’t always write down his recipes (also something I got from him.) So, when he passed away unfortunately, there was a lot of dishes we wished we had the recipes for. One was his clam dip. It’s so good and something I never liked at first and now I love.

I know it sounds weird but it is simply delicious. One day I had decided to try and remember the taste and just started experimenting with ingredients. I was able to make it and the taste was just like when my Dad made it. I was so happy I was able to recreate it just like his.

I wanted to share the recipe with my followers. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I.

Dad’s Clam Dip

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 10 oz cans chopped clams (drained, reserve 1 T of liquid)
1 t salt
1/2-1 T Dill (More for topping)

Directions: In a medium bowl add in the cream cheese. With a fork smash the cream cheese for 2 minutes to soften more. Add in the sour cream and mix well. Next add in chopped clams, the reserved liquid and the Worcestershire sauce. Mix well. Season with the dill and salt. Mix well. Refrigerate at least 1 hour. Add more dill if you’d like. I like extra dill. Sprinkle dill over the top of dip to serve. Serve with your choice of chips or crackers.
