    Move over spinach and artichoke. This creamy, easy at-home crab and corn dip is here to steal your thunder.

     I made this as my contribution to a little get together we had a Granny’s a while back and I’m just getting around to posting it- but I was thinking it would be a good addition to my “dip series”- Summer is coming up and dips are always a good choice to take to a BBQ, eh?

    This particular dip is super easy. Slop it all into a bowl, mix, and then transfer to a baking dish and bake. Of course, I served this dip with sliced baguette that was brushed with olive oil and some herbs and lightly toasted (my old trusty “dipper”).

     

    This recipe made enough to fill up an 8×8 baking dish plus the little white one shown in the photo. I took the smaller dish to work for one of my managers who I share and office with and he literally ate the entire thing as his lunch. Either he really loved it or he was literally starving- so I’ll take it as a compliment and we can say we have Gary’s stamp of approval! Here’s the recipe:
