This is a newer recipe to my repartee, but it has been requested every time there is a party or other gathering! the original recipe comes from The Pampered Chef, in their Stoneware inspirations cook book. This is such an easy, wonderful dip, I know it by heart! I took these pictures the last time I made it and forgot to get one of the final product and when I thought about getting the picture, IT WAS GONE!
1 Package softened cream cheese
1 pressed garlic clove
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
3/4(or so) cup sweet and sour sauce (get one you really like)
1 can crab meat (I like Polar brand. The recipe actually calls for 1 cup chopped imitation crab or go whole hog and get real “fresh” crab)
1/4 cup sliced almonds
Thinly sliced green onions (I wing this, need to cover the top)
Pre-heat the ovan to 350 deg. Mix the cream cheese, garlic and Swiss cheese in a bowl until well combined (I have made this part up to 24hrs before finishing, to let the favors mingle)
When mixed, spread into shallow baking dish. I have a beautiful vintage Fire King pie pan that is dedicated to just this dip. Top with the sweet and sour sauce,
flake the crab on and add sliced almonds. Bake for approximately 20 Min.
When you take it out of the oven, top with the green onions and serve warm with the chips.
