Hot Artichoke-Crabmeat Spread

Baked Cheese Grits
Sweet and Sour Green Bean Hash
Homemade Dinner Rolls

Chocolate Buttermilk Sheet Cake

Fall is trying its best to assert itself around here.  Yeah, the forecast calls for more heat later in the week, but today brings steady drizzle and mild temperatures.  It is this kind of day that makes me think of Bears games and hot dips.  

The original recipe called for lemon-pepper seasoning, but that is an ingredient that I do not keep stocked in my spice cabinet.  So I add fresh lemon juice, a little onion powder, and some freshly ground black pepper to add that seasoned taste.  The earthiness of the artichoke marries well with the sweetness of the crabmeat and what dish doesn't benefit from some mayo and parmesan cheese?! 

Hit it with some cayenne pepper for a kick and this dip has that each bite better than the last quality to it.  

Hot Artichoke-Crabmeat Spread
makes about 3 1/2 cups

2 (14-ounce) cans quartered artichokes, drained well and finely chopped
8 ounces fresh crabmeat, checked for shells and flaked
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Cayenne pepper to taste

Preheat the oven to 350° F.  Butter a 1-quart gratin dish; set aside.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients; stir well.  Spoon into the prepared baking dish.  Bake, uncovered, until hot and bubbling around the edges, about 20-25 minutes.  Serve with crackers.  Enjoy!

  1. I find lots of recipes that call for lemon pepper seasoning -- I have to believe that adding real lemon is so much better. I love this crab dish. I'm sure I could devour the whole bowl myself.

  2. I like the sound of chocolate buttermilk sheet cake.

  3. Seriously anyone invited to these Sunday dinners is one lucky diner! :)

  4. Where can I get the recipe for sweet and sour green bean hash? I have friends visiting from England soon and I am going to make this menu for their arrival dinner.

    1. I haven't posted the recipe for the green bean hash. You can contact me via e-mail and I will see what I can do for you.


Thanks for visiting my blog! I love hearing from family, friends, and bloggers, so please leave a comment. Happy cooking!
