Allow me to introduce you to a Connell family favorite: clammys.

All year long we wait patiently for the holidays to approach. Although holidays traditionally mean things like gifts, parties, and family for us it also means clammys. Oh, clammys.



  • 1 package of whole wheat english muffins
  • 1 jar of old english cheddar cheese
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 can of minced clams
  • fresh parsley
  • paprika

Add a semi-melted stick of butter to a dish with the contents of a jar of old english cheddar. Drain clams and add them to the cheese and butter mixture, turning it into a paste.

Next, half english muffins and spread liberally with the cheese, butter, clam mixture. Top muffins with a heavy hand of parsley and paprika and pop into the oven until crisp, melted, and browned. Cut english muffins into fourths and assemble on a plate.

Warning: Watch out for people who aren’t fans of seafood to suddenly be converts.

And maybe I should mention that crowding around a plate full of clammys is both completely normal and also a perfect example of family bonding.
