Easy crowd pleaser that looks and smells as luscious as it tastes. I use imitation crab + shrimp or scallops when budget conscious.

I used crab and scallops when taste testing this recipe. My, oh my... the Test Kitchen smelled lovely while this was baking away. Dipping the pumpernickel bread into the warm, creamy dip was tasty. A great flavor combination! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
