Home Cuisine American Spinach and Crab Dip

Spinach and Crab Dip

The timing of this recipe on my feed is perfect. I was planning on making crab omelette but when I saw Valerie Bertinelli’s video from FoodNetwork where she’s making this yummy dip, I wanted to make it too because not only it looked so appetizing to me, it seemed so easy to make and I happen to  have a pack of crab meat in the fridge and frozen spinach thawing, I  have all the ingredients on hand except for the Worcestershire sauce.

I don’t think it will make much of a difference without it.,..hmmm. Oh well, I wanted to make it and this didn’t stop me.I still have some home made bread and some tortilla wraps which I thought would be perfect for this delicious dip.

It’s like the universe was  telling me to make this yesterday…and so, I did. 😀

Let’s see, here are some things I did different in the recipe, just minor things:

Didn’t add Worcestershire sauce; added more cayenne pepper; added some turmeric; used less spinach, about 1/2 a cup of squeezed  spinach, definitely not a pound 😀 and lastly, I did not broil the crab dip in the oven- I thought since it’s for 15 minutes only, and I do not have anything to bake or wasn’t planning on baking anything yet, I’d skipped that step.

I just toasted the panko bread crumbs on another pan and spread it on top of the hot dip. 🙂

Happy Cooking!

Melt butter in a pan then saute garlic, onions; Add cream cheese

Add dry mustard, cayenne pepper, paprika and season with salt and pepper

Add spinach and crab meat

add the grated cheese

cook until bubbly

transfer into a baking dish

top with panko bread and put in the preheated oven for 15 mins.. OR, if you’re like me and don’t want to use the big oven just for this; just toast the panko breadcrumbs in a pan and sprinkle on top of dip

Serve with, crackers, chips or tortilla and/or toasted bread..

Serve as soon as you’re done taking photos. Enjoy 🙂
