Creamy-Dreamy Crab Dip

“Big sisters are the crab grass in the lawn of life.” ~Charles M. Schultz

Big Daddy loves crab cakes. Everywhere we eat, no matter what part of the country or what type of restaurant, if they have ‘em, he orders ‘em.  He spots them in his first, cursory menu glance. Sometimes he gets them for an appetizer (before his steak…semper carnivore); other times, he eats them alone. Then he goes to get ice cream. He’s pretty predictable that way.

The problem with crab cakes when you’re on a carb-aware type eating plan is that they are chock-full of breadcrumbs. While I could make a breadcrumb-free version of crab cakes (I know. I know.), I thought I’d let him try this dip out instead and see if he liked it.

Big Daddy gives this dip a hearty two thumbs up. And Big Daddy didn’t get to be Big Daddy by not knowing about good food.

It’s easy. It’s quick. It’s Big-Daddy-approved. What more could a recipe achieve? Served with veggie dippers or flourless crackers for crunch, it’s a creamy and flavorful take on seafood. Big Daddy likes those mini sweet peppers. I’m thinking this dip would be good on them. He’s thinking what I’m thinking.
