8 ounces frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and chopped
8 ounces shelled cooked crab
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1 baguette (8 to 12 oz.)
4 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1 teaspoon fresh oregano leaves
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 375°. In a medium bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon juice, artichokes, crab, parmesan, and salt. Pour into a greased medium gratin dish. Sprinkle with almonds and bake until browned and bubbling, about 15 minutes.
Score baguette 1 in. deep across loaf. Combine oil and herbs and brush over loaf, making sure to let oil soak into cuts. Toast in oven on a baking sheet for 5 minutes before serving with dip.
As soon as I read the ingredients, I knew this was same recipe my mother gave to me many years ago. She would make this for entertaining guests, and I always loved it. This is a super simple, yet elegant appetizer- and filling enough that you could use in lieu of an entree. Also- usually none left, but when there is some, I have used it as filling in omelettes for Sunday morning brunch ( super delish!). If you've never made this and like both crab and artichokes, you wont be disappointed.
