Baked Clams

48 littleneck clams
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tbsp. roasted peppers, minced
4 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. oregano

1. First clean clams. Pry them open with a butter knife (it issafer than steak knife). Cut out the clam and reserve in bowl.Save one side of the clam shell for serving. We will need 48halves.
2. In small bowl combine bread crumbs, garlic, peppers, oil andoregano. Mix well. Now with the clams, I prefer to chop up allthe clams into little pieces (my preference). If you choose tochop them up mix the chopped clams with other ingredients andspoon mixture into clams shells. If you choose not to, takewhole clams and place back in shell and spoon mixture over clam.
3. Place clams on large cookie sheet and bake for about 10minutes. If you like you can garnish with parmesan cheese andlemon.
4. Please make sure before placing clam back into shell that youclean them well.
