Hot Seafood Pie Pan Spread
I renamed it as I have used the recipe for making it with Lobster, Crab, Smoked Fish, or Clams. You can use any type of seafood you like.
Try using it with spiced shredded meat or chopped Salami. Or using left over grill vegetables chopped fine.
I have even changed the Parma cheese and use other cheeses.
- i like adding a tablespoon of cooking sherry or sweet vermouth once in awhile.
How to Make Hot Seafood Pie Pan Spread
- 11 8 oz. cream cheese softened
2 heaping Tbsp sour cream
2 Tbsp mayo
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1 garlic clove minced fine or more ( you can use powdered garlic)
1 8oz can drained minced clams (your choice of seafood or meat)
1/3 cup or more Parmesan cheese, you can use any cheese you like
Chives or parsley for garnish
thin slices of warm baguette or crackers
Spray a 9-10" pie pan. Mix well the cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, onion & garlic powders. Blend in clams. Spread mixture into buttered or Pam coated pie pan & sprinkle heavily with Parmesan cheese and top lightly with chives or parsley. Bake 30 minutes at 325. Serve with warm thin slices of buttered or non buttered baguette or crackers.
- 2The measurements are not EXACT on the sour cream and mayo. Sometimes it's just a tad more or less. I just grab a tablespoon out of the silverware drawer and use that instead of a measuring spoon. I never level it off either.
