Amazing Crab and Shrimp Dip

Amazing Crab and Shrimp Dip

A lot of my motivation in creating Glass Wrappings was my love of entertaining.  I felt our tagline, "Celebrations Simplified," perfectly summed up my desire to make the tasks associated with entertaining as easy as possible!

Thankfully, I also love to cook, so from time to time I am going to share my favorite recipes.  I'm going to try to keep them pretty simple, but if they do require more work, I promise they will be worth it!

Here is my recipe for "Amazing Crab and Shrimp Dip" - it's one I share often.  I made it again this week for a gathering of my in-laws at a gorgeous home on Lake Maxinkuchee in northern Indiana.

Amazing Crab and Shrimp Dip

1 small onion;

1 small loaf of sourdough bread

1 can of shrimp

1 can of crab

1-1/2 cups of regular mayonnaise   

1-1/2 cups of light mayonnaise or Miracle Whip

Salt, pepper, and garlic to taste

Day One:       

1. Mince the onion.

2. Tear or cut the bread into small pieces.

3. Combine the bread and the onion and store in a covered bowl overnight in the refrigerator.

4. Combine the mayonnaises, shrimp, and crab, and store in a covered bowl overnight in the refrigerator.

Day Two:

1.  Combine the contents of the two bowls and refrigerate for a few hours, stirring occasionally to allow the flavors to mix and come to a thick consistency

2.  Adjust the seasonings as needed.
