Cheesy Crab Dip...

Crab Dip....Great for the Holidays!
Every year some friends drop by with fresh crab to add to our holiday meals.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! Thank you, Thank, you Jason & Jodi...
We love eating fresh crab with cocktail sauce or drawn butter! But I also love to save a little left over for a recipe or two. This year I made Crab Dip! It was amazing...and it's not just me saying that!
The few who tried it, raved about it!
Cheesy Crab Dip
1 brick of cream cheese, softened
1 package of Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded (about 2 cups)
1 cup of shaved parmesan cheese
1 cup of sour cream
1 jar of marinated artichokes hearts, drained, leaves removed & cut into small chunks
1 heaping tablespoon of capers, drain
1 teaspoon of dehydrated galic
Celery salt & Black pepper, season to taste
1 fresh cooked crab, cleaned and shred into pieces
Mix well, Bake in a prepared small casserole dish at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cover with foil if needed the last 10 minutes.
Serve with a small sourdough loaf of sliced bread...slightly warmed.
Or Crackers!...Mmmm, maybe just with a spoon!!!
I was told by one of my tasters..." If there were a table full of Crab Dips...this would be the one to EAT, Hands Down!"
Now that's a compliment! Hubby chimed in to report this was the BEST he's ever eaten, put's others to shame!!!
Give it a try....The ingredients are so simple! Most items are probably already in your pantry/fridge.
Your Holiday Guests will Rave about your Recipe with Style...
