Hot Crab and Cheesy Artichoke Dip

I would assume if you are a sushi lover, you are also a seafood lover. It’s hard to imagine the two not coinciding. As such, I am a sushi-seafood lover. I really should be a coastal gal. Living landlocked is not opportune for my diet needs. I need salmon. I need shrimp. I need halibut and mahi mahi. And I really need crab. A good sweet crab leg can cure many things. I think it’s time I moved back to my west-coast roots. Although, I would take the east coast as well. They have crazy-good crab. And the best New England Clam Chowder. After all, it is the namesake of the delicious stuff. They ought to have the best.

Hot Crab and Cheesy Artichoke Dip
This Hot Crab and Cheesy Artichoke Dip combines my crab adoration with another of my foodie obsessions. Artichokes. Oh I love artichokes. My mother grew up eating them with melted butter (always a win), and my father always had them with  mayo (weird, I know). I like it both ways. And I like artichokes in things like wontons (psst! coming soon!), soups (check out THIS ONE!), pasta dishes (like THIS) and in hot cheesy crabby dips. This dip is incredibly easy to make. Seriously. Throw everything in a bowl, give it a stir, pop it in the oven. Done. Hot Crab and Cheesy Artichoke Dip deliciousness accomplished.

Although I don’t like crab I think my husband would LOVE this and I need to make it for him! Once again -you have the prettiest pictures ever. And a random thought, do you post EVERY day of the week? I noticed 1 day had 2 posts. You are on the ball girly!

    You don’t like crab?!?! Oh sweetie…. 😉 haha at least your husband is on board, I can accept that. 🙂 I do post every day! This week I am testing the waters on a double-post day, and that’s why you saw two posts on Wednesday this week! Depending on how I feel about it I may start doing it every Wednesday. Am I totally insane?!?! Probably. 🙂

My heaven right there! pinned!

I plan to make this for our office Christmas party since we are having mainly appetizers for lunch. If I make this tonight and bake it, will it still taste delicious if it is warmed back up in a crockpot tomorrow? 🙂

I eat my artichokes with mayo too! It’s how I was raised to eat them.

Can you add rice or quinoa to Make it a more substantial side dish. Or would that make it dry?

    You could definitely do that – I’d probably try 1 cup cooked rice or quinoa stirred right into the dip before baking.

I am mayo phobic. Do you think i could sub non fat plain greek yogurt?

    Maybe add a bit of lemon juCe to give it a bit of personality. Green YOGURT HAS none but the right amount of thickness to make a sturdy dip. Just experiment, rememberi g you can always add more but you can’t take it away.
