Recipe Blog Hop

I decided to give the blog hop a try this week. Hopefully I can figure it out. Ha!

Crab Dip in a Bread Bowl

This is my most favorite dish to take to gatherings!

Ingredients:

11 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 small onion, finely chopped
5 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 (6 ounce) cans crab meat, drained and flaked
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
1 (1 pound) round loaf Italian bread


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cream cheese, onion, mayonnaise, crab meat, garlic powder, salt and pepper.
Spread into a baking dish.
Bake for 20 min.
While the dip is baking, cut a circle in the top of the bread and scoop out the inside to create a bread bowl.
Tear the removed bread into pieces for dipping.
Remove baked crab dip from the oven and stir well.
Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out loaf.
Place bread bowl and chunks of bread on a medium baking sheet.
Bake for 10 additional minutes.
Serve hot.

*I usually serve it with crackers too. It's so good that the bread pieces don't last long! ENJOY!
