Campbell’s Soup Clam Dip is a clam dip recipe I recently found in my 1968 edition of a Campbell Cookbook Easy Ways to Delicious Meals, and it has only two ingredients.
Who doesn’t love old cookbooks? I especially love this Campbell’s cookbook. While yes, it is a recipe book with a lot of their soups are used in the recipes, they also give lots of tips and tricks to planning a meal, planning a party, and much more. I love how they empower you to cook and turn an ordinary meal into something more. For example, this recipe for their Zippy Clam Dip has two additional preparation ideas.
Zippy Clam Dip Variations
- Manhatten Clam Dip – To basic recipe add 2 tablespoons minced onion and 2 tablespoons ketchup
- Garlic Dip – To basic recipe, add 1 medium clove garlic, minced; 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Seriously? Who doesn’t the modification ideas when they are added to a recipe?
How was this recipe
So, I recently brought this recipe to a party. The Zippy Clam Dip was well received, I actually had a couple of people tell me it was really good. I liked it too! I will say I think this clam dip tastes better when you make it a day ahead. The flavors open up, and the clam taste really shines through.
What to serve with Clam dip?
I recommend serving this dip with some Ritz crackers, potato chips, and vegetable sticks like carrots and celery. I believe you could also serve this dip warm if you desired.
