Easy Crab and Bacon Dip

Crab and bacon dip

Crab and bacon dip

It’s party season, and parties mean TONS of finger food!  This is one of my all time favorite dips!  It’s great for parties and has become a New Years tradition at our house.  The best part is it’s super easy to throw together and you can make it ahead of time and refrigerate until the party starts.  It doesn’t get much better than bacon, crab, and cream cheese…….yummmm!

Ingredients

Start by cooking the bacon, slicing the onions and chopping up the crab.  While the bacon is cooling beat the softened cream cheese and sour cream in a blender until light and fluffy. Stir in the pepper and horseradish.  Then fold in the bacon bits, crab and onions with a spatula.  I’m sure you could use real crab, but I’m to cheap frugal to buy the real stuff and my family enjoys the imitation crab just fine.  If you don’t have any horseradish on hand you can substitute mustard but horseradish is the best. (in my opinion)  At this point it needs to sit for a bit to let the flavors blend, a hour in the fridge should do the trick or you could even make it the day before.  Just before serving give it a little taste and add salt or pepper if needed.  I added a little garlic salt to this batch. 🙂

So I got a little behind…..ok REALLY behind on posting ANYTHING!!  Life just got away from me for a couple of months.  I didn’t even take many pictures, but I figured I’d share a few from what I did get over the last three months and let everyone know that we’re still alive and well. 🙂

I have always had a rule about picking pumpkins….”If you can pack it you can have it.”

Pumpkin Patch

They might be getting to big for that rule.  They managed to get their 38 and 41 pound pumpkins home safely.

I’ve been trying to spend a few hours every Saturday cooking for the freezer.  I love having homemade extras in the freezer for breakfast and lunches.

Gunner grew LOTS in the last couple months.

We got our first snow really early and the weather has been pretty crazy.  We’ve already missed 3 days of school due to ice storms.  Hope you are all staying warm, safe and enjoying this holiday season so far!
