Everyone loves this classic appetizer.  Honestly, I’m not a huge seafood fan, but I do enjoy a good baked clam!

2 dozen clams
4 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoons bread crumbs
1 teaspoon parsley or chives
1/4 teaspoon oregano
Salt & pepper
Grated Parmesan cheese
Lemon juice

Scrub clams with a stiff brush under cold water until all grit and dirt is removed.  Saute onion and garlic in olive oil until they become golden.  Open the clams and remove the clams from shell.  Chop up clams very fine, mix with bread crumbs, parsley, salt, pepper and oregano.  Fill the cleaned shells.  Sprinkle with cheese and lemon juice.  Dot with butter and place under a hot broiler for about 5 minutes.
