Keto Spicy Clams Casino

When we throw parties I think long a hard about what sort of food to prepare… Will our event be casual of slightly more formal? Will we offer a sit-down dinner with multiple courses, or just set out heavy hor oeuvres? Although I love grand dinner parties, I find people are more comfortable when we keep things casual.

Ingredients:

  • 24 clams
  • 12 slices bacon
  • 150g Red onion
  • 30g red bell pepper
  • 30g yellow bell pepper
  • 30g orange bell pepper
  • 30g jalapeno
  • 1 bulb garlic
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Old Bay
  • Franks Red Hot

Instructions:

Finely dice onions and peppers and reserve. Mince a bulb of garlic in a press then reserve. Place two dozen clams in a pot of salted water and bring to a boil watching for the clams to pop open, then drain and reserve. Discard any non-popped clams. Fry a dozen slices of bacon and reserve. In the bacon grease, sauté onions and bell peppers seasoned with salt pepper and old bay until softened, then add in garlic, cook for a few more minutes and drain. Half all the shells, and double up the clams in each half shell (2 clams per half shell). Top each shell with a heaping tbsp of sautéed veggies and a piece of broken bacon. Throw under a low heat broiler for a few minutes until bacon crisps up. Serve with tons of hot sauce drizzled over top.
