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.
