My daughter recently had a birthday. Of course we had a party. Her theme was princess this year. All the little girls wore princess dresses and tiaras. It was a really special moment for her. I decided to keep the food simple this year. Clean and light. I made my ramon noodle salad, (Featured on this blog) deviled eggs, hot ham and cheese pretzel roll sliders, chips with salsa, and this awesome crab dip.
All the food got eaten. I was so happy to not have a fridge packed with wasted leftovers!
This is one of my favorite recipes I came up with for crab dip. It can be eaten cold too.
1 (8 oz.) pkg. Cream Cheese
1/2 c. Mayo
1/3 c. Chopped Onion
1 (8 oz) pkg. Imitation Crab, Chopped
1/2 c. Shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
1/4 c. Shredded Parmesan Cheese
1/2 tsp. Fancy Mustard
Few Sprigs Fresh Parsley. Chopped
Old Bay or Cajun seasoning, optional
Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl. Blend well.
Add seasoning to taste, if desired.
Put into 1 quart casserole dish and bake for 350* for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly.
Serve warm with crackers.
