1 cup white wine
50 Baymen’s Pride™ littleneck clams
8 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
2 cups bread crumbs
1 stick butter, melted
3 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup parsley leaves, chopped
¼ cup finely grated Parmesan
1 Tbsp. salt

Place the white wine and clams in covered pot and steam until clams have opened.  Discard any clams that do not open.  Remove the clams from the pot and remove meat from shells.  Arrange clams on the half-shell.

In a medium bowl, mix the bacon, bread crumbs, butter, garlic, parsley, Parmesan, salt, and green pepper. Top each clam with the bread crumb mixture, sprinkle with a dash of hot pepper sauce, and place under broiler until golden brown.
