Grannies Old Fashioned Clam Dip Recipe is a homemade favorite for parties! A favorite appetizer recipe for Super Bowl from Serena Bakes Simply From Scratch.

We are celebrating National Grandparents Day for this weeks #SundaySupper. In memory of my sweet Granny because she was simply one of the most amazing people I've ever met I decided to share my rendition of her famous Homemade Clam Dip.

Grannies Clam Dip isn't actually her recipe since she passed away before I had the opportunity for her to share it with me but my version of a dip she made often for a weekend snack served with ruffled potato chips and lots of veggies.

It was as much a staple in our home as Puff Pancakes and Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup. It was always a favorite and never lasted long enough.

I choose to name it Grannies Clam Dip since I knew it would pass the test of her picky palate and when I think of Clam Dip I always think of her clam dip.

Some people idol a celebrity or super hero but to me my Grannies is the one I admire.

She was amazing, strong, loving and kind.

Granny set the foundation for my love of the kitchen with all the amazing recipes she served.

Her heart was as beautiful as they come with patience I can only hope will come with age. She was always so unselfish and giving in every way imaginable!

She spent endless hours helping me grow into the person that I am today.

With that said I hope you enjoy the recipe for Grannies Clam Dip as my family does.

Here's how I make my recipe for Clam Dip:
Caramelized Onions and shallots for Homemade Clam Dip recipe.

In a heavy duty skillet add: 
  • 1 tablespoon Butter
  • 2 cups Diced Sweet Onions
  • 2 tablespoons Shallot
