Need Appetizer?

A few weeks back Rio and I came across these lovelies ($2 for 2 boxes) at a garage sale. Woo hoo!! How cute are they?? I'm in Cali right now enjoying some last minute R & R before Christmas and these little things kept staring at me saying "please fill me with crab dip" !! Recipe follows :) Oh, and this little starter would be fantastic for New Years... :)

Hot Crab and Shrimp Dip
1/2 c mayonnaise
1 1/2 tsp whole-grain mustard ( I used Maille - old style)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1/2 pound lump crab meat
1/2 c chopped cooked shrimp (about 1/4 pound)
1/3 c shredded smoked cheese
1/3 c sliced almonds, toasted
Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in crab, shrimp, and cheese. Spoon mixture into a 3-cup baking dish. Bake at 375 for 15 to 20 minutes or until bubbly. Sprinkle with almonds.
** I served mine on a bed of micro greens for an added crunch, and okay cause it looked pretty!!


  1. Oh, I want that now...for breakfast. Okay, glad I saw this, grocery day... putting this on my ingredients list. I will let ya know how good mine is.

    May God bless you with the desires of your heart for Christmas, Dorie, things that money can't buy!

    Merry Christmas,
