Baked Hot Clam Dip

This is an old family recipe. It's like a giant baked clam served warm with crackers. It could be prepared, up until the baking, a day in advance. Just put it in the refrigerator and bake when ready the next day! If you make it and freeze it for the future, just thaw and reheat. This is a family favorite and a crowd pleaser when I make it for guests.

1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup onion chopped
1/4 cup bell pepper chopped
1/4 cup celery chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp hot sauce, or more if you like it spicy
1 can minced clams
Fresh lemon juice of 1 lemon
1 cup panko bread crumbs

Preparation Instructions
Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook onion, pepper, celery and garlic until soft. Add lemon juice, clams with juice, and hot sauce. Remove from heat and add bread crumbs. Put into a small greased casserole dish and bake at 350 F for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with crackers.
