Buckytom, I knew I had a recipe somewhere...
New England Clam Pie! (From the WAC (Women’s Army Corps) Cookbook, 1952):
For 2 pies:
2 9-inch pie shells, unbaked
2 cups fresh clams, chopped and drained
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium potato, diced
4 slices crispy bacon, crumbled
1 cup whole cream
salt, pepper, sage
Sprinkle pie shells with clams, onion, potato, and bacon, dividing equally.
In a bowl, beat together eggs, cream, and seasonings.
Pour over mixture in pie shells.
Bake at 375 for 30 to 40 minutes until golden brown.
Pain is inevitable. Suffering is Optional.
