Creamy, flavorful, and 100% addicting, my grandma's clam dip will be the star of every party!! This is the perfect chip dip to serve for game day, holiday get togethers, or potlucks. Just be sure to make a double batch because this clam dip goes fast!

  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened*
  • 1 tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 (6.5 oz.) can minced clams, drained with juice reserved
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 green onions (white and green parts), finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, diced
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • dash or two Tabasco sauce, to taste
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • potato chips for serving
  1. In a medium bowl mash cream cheese with fork until soft and creamy. Add 1 tablespoon clam juice and all other ingredients. Stir until ingredients are completely combined.
  2. Add more clam juice as needed for desired consistency. I add about 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon of the clam juice.
  3. This dip is even tastier made ahead of time. Make up to about 8 hours before serving and store covered in the refrigerator. Serve with potato chips.
Recipe Notes

*If you forget to take the cream cheese out of the fridge to soften at room temperature, you can pop it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Just make sure to take it out of the foil packaging!

Storing leftovers: Clam dip will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days, but I promise it won't last that long.
