This month means a lot in different ways for all of us. For me, it is the beginning of College Football.
College Football started this past Thursday (officially) although for us it was Saturday. Loved being able to spend time with friends earlier in the day, and then to have time to make snacks/dinner for the family was really wonderful. I made my pimento dip, million dollar dip and crab and artichoke (hot) dip. It was so yummy! I hated having to turn on the oven with it being 90 plus degrees outside. I haven’t made the crab artichoke dip in a long while. I don’t always seem to make it the same way…what we have on hand I suppose. College Football is almost like a religion in the South. I have missed it so…
Cravings. Crab. A little butter, and a squirt of lemon. Perfect. Simple.
This dip is one of my favorites. Sometimes it is just artichoke dip, sometimes it is artichoke and crab dip. Same basic recipe.
1 can plain artichokes (in water) rough chop
1 can crab meat -drain
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup Parmesan cheese (reserve 1/2 cup)
Squirt of lemon juice
dash of pepper
Drain and chop the artichokes. Squirt the lemon juice on the artichokes. Add mayo, cheese, pepper and blend. Add drained crab and 1/2 cup of the Parmesan cheese gently. Pour into a grease casserole dish. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
I served this with Stacey’s Bagel Chips, which were perfect. Yummy.
