The SouthCoast of Massachusetts and Rhode Island have plenty of options for the best stuffed quahogs
Stuffed quahogs, otherwise known as stuffies, are a mixture of diced quahogs, breadcrumbs and spices baked on the half-shell. Rhode-Island’s Depression-era homemakers made the stuffed quahog recipe popular making a protein-packed, satisfying meal from inexpensive local ingredients.

Quahogs are hard-shelled clams that live buried in the sandy bottoms of estuaries along the Atlantic coast. Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay is a prime source for these local seasonal delights.

Stuffed quahogs are a staple at summertime shacks. Traditionally, stuffies are served with just a dab of butter but, some people enjoy adding a dash of hot sauce too.
