Spinach, Artichoke, and Crab Dip

The other weekend when we had a party to go to, I was try to think of what dip to make.  I mentioned Spinach and Artichoke Dip because that is always one of our favorites.  I also mentioned making a Crab Dip.  My husband thought it would be a good idea to add crab to Spinach and Artichoke Dip.  I turned him down at first, but the more I thought about it the better of an idea it became.
I decided to make the dip in a bread bowl because I love bread bowl dips.  The best part of these dips is eating the bread that is soaked with the dip and dip flavor.  I think this Spinach, Artichoke, and Crab Dip was one of the best dips that I have ever made.  Everyone loved it and the whole thing was devoured at the party.
This dip would be great for a Superbowl party or any party.  This makes a great appetizer.  The addition of the crab adds so much good flavor to the traditional Spinach and Artichoke Dip.  I plan on making this dip again to watch the football games this weekend.  I hope that you try it!
Spinach, Artichoke, and Crab Dip

Spinach, Artichoke, and Crab Dip


  • 2 cans jumbo lump crab
  • 1 can (14 ounces) artichoke hearts, drained and finely chopped
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Round loaf of bread
  • Loaf of bread, cubed for dipping


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients together, except 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, until combined.
  3. Take the round loaf of bread and cut a small circle out of the top of the bread. Save the lid for use during cooking. Cut away the bread inside the round loaf to make a hollow space. Save this bread for dipping.
  4. Place the dip inside the bread bowl. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese over the top of the dip. Then put the lid back on the bread bowl. Place the bread bowl on a cookie sheet to bake. If there is extra filling that will not fit in the bread bowl, place it in a casserole dish and bake beside the bread bowl.
  5. Bake the crab dip for 1 hour and serve hot. Bake any extra dip in the casserole dish for only 20 minutes or until heated through. Serve with the extra bread from the inside of the bowl and the cubed bread. It also tastes good with tortilla chips.
