Seafood Monday

We love seafood at our house.  I would have to say that crab, shrimp, and lobster are my FAVORITE foods.  I love them in dips, sauces, main courses, sandwiches, and the list goes on and on.  Last night we went to an engagement party and I ate something that I have never tryed before.......Lamb chops with mint jelly.  Mmmm good.  I actually was surprised.  I really think they tasted like steak, but I've gotten off the subject.  They also had a hot crab dip served with toast points.  It was very good.  It gave me the idea to start Seafood Monday.  So, check back each Monday for more seafood recipes that we love. 


1/2 pound crabmeat
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tbsp. mayonnaise
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
pinch garlic salt
paprika, for garnish

Remove cartilage from crabmeat. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, sour cream, may, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard and garlic salt until smooth. Add enough milk to make mixture creamy. Stir in 2 tbsp. of grated cheese. Fold crabmeat into mixture.

Pour mixture into a 1 quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 325° until mixture is bubbly and browned on top, about 30 minutes. Serve with crackers, toast points, or pita chips.
 Makes about 4 cups of dip.
