Bandit's Hot Seafood Artichoke Dip (Very TNT!)
Bandit is a venerable blond cocker spaniel owned by Helene Blackwell of Florence, South Carolina. A true connoisseur of all food, Bandit particularly loves the aroma of this dip. As a result, it was served to a “group of Florentine” ladies who came to celebrate Bandit's fourth birthday in 1982. It remains a hit at parties, testimony to Miss Bandit's discriminating sense of smell. (It's possible that she has given it a taste test, too!)
·2 cans artichoke hearts, drained and chopped (14 oz each)
·2 cups mayonnaise
·2 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese
·1 1/2 cup chopped shrimp, or half shrimp and half crab meat
·1/2 cup dry seasoned bread crumbs
