Foodie Friday: Hot Crab Dip

Merry Christmas from my crew to yours ! Hope everyone's celebrations were full of love and family .My absolute favorite part of Christmas is the 3 F's ...Family , Friends, and Food!!!! My family celebrates Christmas with the extended family on Christmas Eve during the day. We do an appetizer and sweets kinda thing in hope that no ones appetite will be spoiled before dinner. As for me, I stuffed my face with all of the appetizers and skipped out on dinner :) If I had my way every meal would consist of a mix match of bite sized goodies . This year mom and I went with some old favorites as well as a few new recipes. My mom's Double Tomato Bruchetta is always a big hit so we had to throw that in the mix along with barbecue meatballs,hot crab dip, and mini ham sammies. The crab dip and bruschetta were the only two that had real recipes . The rest were kind of just thrown together ( thats generally how I cook lol). To be honest , even the dip was an experiment.The crab dip was a combo of a few recipes that I gathered .I used the sophisticated culinary approach of  "pick n choose" and mixed the two recipes together, luckily it was a successful experiment ;)


8 oz lump crab
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup mayo
1/2 large yellow onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1 red bell pepper chopped
1/2 can artichoke hearts ( cut into small pieces)
1/2 teaspoon. garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon tumeric
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese


1.In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients except the Parmesan cheese. I was able to mix with a spoon because my cream cheese was really soft but if not a hand mixer would work well 
2.Spray a square baking dish 8x8 and pour mixture into the pan. sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top
 ( we had a large crowd so I doubled the recipe and used a 9x13)
3. Bake at 375 for 15 minutes then broil the top for just a few minutes until the top gets browned just a little bit 
4. I served with a sliced baguette as well as pita chips

    1. The stockings were on clearance last year which makes them even cuter . We are a little obsessed with matching our wrapping paper to our ornaments...OCD much? Thank you , I think they are a pretty cute bunch but I may be a little biased lol Can't go wrong with Stacy's! Hope you and your boys are having a great week!
