McBubba likes good food. Local seafood restaurant stuffies were disapointing. This recipe is the result of try, adjust and retry. It will not disapoint!


  1. Buy Quahaugs, scrub well then freeze them in their shell. When frozen, open , chop, put in zip-lock and back in freezer.
  1. Wash shells in dishwasher. Plan on doing this much at least one day in advance.
  2. In a large skillet, try bacon until almost crisp. Drain off half of the fat.

  4. Add the butter. Melt and then add the lemon juice, hot sauce and black pepper. Turn off the heat
  5. Mix well and then stir in the stuffing mixes
