I just happened to have a little leftover Crab Chowder. And so what better application for these leftovers than the CPM’s favorite leftover staple – hot dip!?! I served this dip with Ritz crackers but I was really wishing for some plain ol’ Saltines. This hot appetizer is easy to throw together and can be prepared a day in advance and refrigerated until you want to cook it. Don’t have any Crab Chowder? Maybe try clam chowder.
Crab Chowder Hot Dip
1 cup leftover crab chowder, drained of most liquid
1 cup freshly grated mozzarella cheese
1 cup freshly grated Romano cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and spoon into an oven proof dish.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until mixture is hot, bubbling and brown on top. Serve hot with crackers, chips or bread.
Never that of making chowder as a dip but looks delicious (:
