At this point the recipe says to add 6 oz of canned clams and save the juice, but I don't do clams. But if it makes you happy, then throw them in.I added bacon! (a large handful) Bacon makes me happy.
Now we are to add Italian bread crumbs (1/2 cup), 1 beaten egg, and 1/4 cup clam juice. Well, I don't really like clam juice much more than I like clams so I had to come up with a substitution. I was thinking chicken broth, but didn't have any. I had some 3 day old cold coffee sitting here, or maybe some fruit punch flavored Crystal Light? Then I spotted a bottle of white wine and decided that was my best option.To this add grated Parmesan (2 tbsp), grated Romano (1 tbsp), and grated mozzarella (2 tbsp), and mix all together.
The finished product. My review: meh, they're ok.
