I must share the great dip we had tonight. With the upcoming Super Bowl this will be perfect for a game day party. Serve with toasted bread ~ baguettes are our favorite.
- 8 o.z. cream cheese
- 1 small jalapeno
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1/4 tsp thyme
- 1/3 cup fresh grated parmesan
- 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella
- 1 slice thick cut bacon ~ cooked crispy and crumbled
- 6 o.z. lump crab meat ~ we used the claw meat available in the seafood department
Allow cream cheese to soften. Add jalapeno and garlic ~ both minced using a microplane.
Add paprika, pepper, thyme, half of the parmesan, and 1/2 cup of the mozzarella, crab meat, and crumbled bacon; blend well. Spread into buttered baking dish ~ a pie pan is the perfect size. Top with remaining half of parmesan and 1/4 cup of mozzarella. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until golden brown.
Enjoy ~ Kimberly
