Unique bread

Love the look of this unique bread from Breadworks, Petosky, Michigan. And the aroma coming from the oven when it was warmed up was heavenly . . .

Now to find a luscious spread for it. . .Browsing through Tastes & Treasures cookbook for ideas and I found hot crab dip on page 165.  Yummmmm.

Hot Crab Dip 

8 ounces cream cheese, softened
6 ounces crab meat, shells and cartilage removed
2 or 3 green onions, sliced
Dash of Tabasco Sauce
Sliced Almonds

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cream cheese, crab meat, green onions and Tabasco sauce in a bowl and mix until combined. Spoon the crab mixture into a small baking dish and bake for 25 minutes. Sprinkle with the almonds and bake for 10 minutes longer. Serve with chips and/or assorted party crackers. You may prepare up to 4 hours in advance and store, covered, in the refrigerator. Bake just before serving as directed above.
