Super Bowl Recipepalooza #4: Creamy Crab Dip
Everyone has their own reasons for watching the Super Bowl; the commercials, gathering with friends, the occasional wardrobe malfunction, the food or even possibly the game. I enjoy football but my real reason for celebrating one of the biggest sporting events of the year is the food and friends! This dip couldn’t be easier to make (unless someone else makes it for you)! Add this dip to your Super Bowl spread and give your guests something to rave about besides the winning touchdown. Enjoy!
CREAMY CRAB DIP
2 – 8 ounce packages cream cheese
1 – 16 ounce container Tillamook Sour Cream
1 cup Tillamook Shredded Italian Blend Cheese
4 green onions, thinly sliced
2 celery stalks, diced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
salt & pepper to taste
½ to ¾ cup crab meat (fresh or store bought)
breadcrumbs or crushed crackers
Preheat oven to 300° F. Place cream cheese in a baking dish and set aside. Mix together sour cream, cheese, onions, celery, lemon juice, salt, pepper and crab meat Pour sour cream mixture over the cream cheese and bake for 45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes to incorporate cream cheese. Sprinkle breadcrumbs or cracker over top for the last 5-10 minutes of baking. Serve warm with bread, pita chips, crackers, chips or veggies.
