Image of Clams Casino dish
Combine bread crumbs, butter, bell pepper, parsley, green onions and pepper, blend well. Shuck clams, leaving loosened clam meat in one half of shell and discard other half of shell. Place clams on-half-shell in a baking dish and cover each with about a teaspoon of the casino mixture. Broil clams 4 to 6 inches from heat for about 3 minutes or until browned. Garnish with bacon and serve immediately.
