Slow-Cooker Clams with Bacon, Leeks & White Wine Yep, you can make slow-cooker clams--and they're absolutely delicious! Savory bacon enriches this broth while white wine permeates the entire dish. Serve the remaining wine to guests with dinner. Don't skip out on the bread! There's much satisfaction to be had in sopping up the broth with a toasted baguette.
