Bread Bowl Seafood Dip Recipe

"Every Christmas Eve, our family has a special hors d’oeuvre supper and this seafood-stuffed dip is a much-requested staple," says Terry Flewelling of Lacombe, Alberta. "I got the recipe from a friend, who made it for my daughter’s wedding shower. It’s so rich, elegant and creamy—and a huge hit at parties any time of year at all!"

"Everyone loves this dip and it is fantastic for holidays, a party or anytime. Sourdough, rye, pumpernickel...I've used it all with rave reviews all around. You can even make the dip ahead of time & refrigerate it till you're ready to use it. I use freshly cooked shrimp and add a good amount of Old Bay seasoning. My Xmas eve appetizer parties aren't complete without it. Yummy! Terry, you're my hero!"
