No wonder it didn't look right. I kept switching the c and s around and finally just said to heck with it and hit reply.

clams are usually a big hit here and we buy them in

50 pound bags for cookouts so I am not really sure about the count. I would allow at least 1 dozen per person(20) as an appetizer. That would give the clam lovers about 1 1/2 dozen each.

Clams Casino appatizer usually comes with 5 clams....that's for normal people. I could eat 30 and go back for seconds.

Where's this party? .......exactly?

Look for the taco truck parked in the drive with CA plates

There will be a lot of other food available. Clams are not the center of attention.

If you want directions to the party you have to go to Helen Bach.

Yeah, I meant 5 PP would be good.

I got that, thanks. That works out to about 8.5 dozen.

I think I would overbuy clams. Those who like them are going to eat little else. If you invite me, plan at least dozen. I do agree with the mussel idea. A three pound bag will serve a lot of people, a marinara sauce for mussels works well. Leftover clams can be chopped or sliced and frozen for soups or fried. Popping the clams on the grill instead of steaming frees up the kitchen for other uses. You probably will not need a container for the done ones. People will be eating them off the grill.

typically steamers come in a much larger portion than other types of clams. I just love them and wish I was going to the party! May have to buy my own and steam them.
