As promised, I gave the 'Gansett clam bake a try. It is nice that you don't have to dig a major hole on the beach, collect rocks and seafood and eat sandy food that takes forever to cook. I didn't have all of the ingredients in-house so I fudged things a bit. For instance, I omitted the breakfast sausage and cut the quantity of everything in half. All in all, a good, solid meal that only left me with one pot to clean up. This was certainly tasty and I recommend giving it a try. I did dip my steamers in butter, well because I just like butter that much.
