With a little arm twisting, he graciously shared his recipe for this wonderful treat, and I can't wait till these two go clamming again, soon please.

About 24 clams
2 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil

Shuck clams, discarding top shell. Spread clams on half shell on large baking sheet. Heat butter in microwave till almost melted. Stir in garlic powder, wine, and Old Bay. Drizzle over clams. Sprinkle breadcrumbs and cheese over clams, then Italian seasoning. Bake in a 375F oven about 25 minutes, or till tops are golden brown and clams are heated through. Serve immediately.
