    My guests really enjoyed them. I added a little hot sauce to the mixture for a little bite.

    The Clam-Ups were nothing special, they were alright, really. Next time, I'll probably make them with the biscuit dough or the crescent dough like the other review suggested. The appetizer got mixed review from my family. My fiance really liked them, but my sister didn't.
