‘Tis the season for dips!
I don’t know about you…but I can make a meal out of a dip. In fact, my favorite holiday parties to attend are the ones that serve heavy appetizers and dips in lieu of something more main course-y.
My Baked Crab & Artichoke Dip is just what you need for your holiday parties…or for you plain old Thursdays. You’ll love it!
This dip fits a 9″ pie plate.
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 (14 oz) can of quartered artichoke hearts, drained
2 cups lump crab meat
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
about 8 chopped green onions
about 3 cups of crushed Ritz crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (I used Pam) a 9″ pie plate. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer your cream cheese and mayo. Stir in the chopped garlic, artichoke hearts, crab meat, Parmesan and green onions. Spread this mixture down into your pie plate. Top dip with crushed Ritz crackers.
Pop the pie plate in the oven and bake about 25 minutes. The crackers will be golden brown and everything should be bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite dipping veggies, tortilla chips or crackers.
This will be a hit at any holiday get together!
