Out for the evening with uptight career girl, Jan Morrow (Doris Day), Brad (as Rex) decides to try a little reverse psychology. Enjoying some drinks at the bar, Jan offers Rex some crackers and dip. To her great alarm, he says: “Ain’t this tasty! Wonder if I could get the recipe.” From that point onwards, Jan’s putty in his hands.
This recipe comes from that old mid-century stalwart, The Joy of Cooking.
1 cup minced clams
3 oz soft cream cheese
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
pinch of dry mustard
1 Tbs. onion juice
¼ cup heavy cream
Drain the clams and combine with the remaining ingredients until well-blended. Serve with crackers, vegetable sticks, or bread.
