Rhode Island Stuffies (stuffed clams) | This is my version of a great stuffed clam I had in Middletown Rhode Island, just north of Newport. I always like trying to make these recipes at home. They may not come out exactly the same, but I get a little taste of these great dishes. The Chourico doesn’t seem to be a normal ingredient of a stuffed clam, but it is fantastic. This Portuguese influence is one of the reasons it is a Stuffie and not a normal clam. Enjoy!
