In this video, you’ll see how to make a creamy crab and artichoke dip that’s baked in a bread bowl. Cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise form the delicious base, along with Cheddar, herbs, and seasonings. For the artichokes, Chef John prefers the less fibrous bottom portion of the vegetable. Can you use imitation crab for this dip? Of course. Will it taste as delicious? Not likely. Next you’ll see how to prepare the crusty round bread. The best part of baking the dip in a bread bowl? You can eat the bowl! The second best part? No serving dish to clean! Serve it hot with crackers. A great party snack, it’s the best football food out there!
