Everyone is gearing up for the big game, coming up this Sunday! I know Phoenix is all abuzz about the amount of traffic around the stadium and all of the revenue the out of town guests will be bringing to our state! Why not make an easy decision about your Super Bowl snacks by serving MATLAW’s frozen seafood?
MATLAW’S can be found at Albertsons and they have quite a variety that will keep all of your guests happy! My family tried out the Crispy Buffalo Shrimp, Crispy Original Shrimp and the New England Style Stuffed Clams. I just set my oven to 450 and popped everything in the oven.
My boys loved the Buffalo Shrimp! It wasn’t too spicy but it had just a little bit of a kick. I know that buffalo sauce goes well with chicken but I would have never guessed that it complimented shrimp so well! The stuffed clams were my favorite. At only 100 calories each, my new year’s resolution was not blown!
How about a fun recipe for your Super Bowl party that will really impress your guests?
Matlaw’s Bacon & Cheese Clam Pizza Bites
Favorite comfort foods combine to offer a new spin on the classic.
Prep Time: 10
Cook Time: 45
Total Time: 55
16oz whole grain pizza dough or a pre-made THIN pizza crust (like Boboli)
4 Matlaw’s Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Clams
1 cup shredded 2% mozzarella cheese
1 cup baby spinach
1.5 cups marinara sauce
Preheat oven to 425°F for cooking the pizza. Microwave clams two at a time for 3-4 minutes and set aside. Although we like baking or grilling our stuffed clams, for this recipe, we recommend microwaving them for easiest handling and the cleanest shell for later use as a bowl for the dipping sauce. Prepare your preferred crust and spread 3/4-1 cup marinara sauce evenly across the pizza then top with baby spinach and mozzarella. Place pizza in oven (3-4 minutes if using a prepared crust, 12-15 minutes if using raw pizza dough). While pizza is baking, spoon stuffing out of clam shells into a bowl. When pizza is halfway done, crumble Matlaw’s Bacon and Cheese Stuffed Clam stuffing over the pizza. Return to the oven and continue cooking until the crust has turned golden brown. Slice pizza into small, bite sizes triangles. Fill empty clam shells with marinara sauce for dipping. Serve immediately.
