    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (50 g) packet onion soup mix (spring onion continental)
    • 2 cups sour cream
    • 1 cup mayonnaise
    • 1 (200 g) can crabmeat, drained
    • 4 sliced spring onions
    • 1 (400 g) packet frozen spinach, thawed & drained
    • 1 large loaf of round unsliced crusty bread


    1. 1
      Mix powdered soup mix with sour cream and mayonnaise and refrigerate until soup mix softens (this can be done overnight if you like).
    2. 2
      Stir in well the rest of the ingredients.
    3. 3
      Take a large round unsliced bread loaf and cut a big circle from the top. Hollow the cavity out by pressing down on the bread. Make little cuts around the edges of the loaf near the rim of the circle.
    4. 4
      Fill the loaf with the dip. The cuts allow people to tear bread off easily to dip. I usually chop up the bread 'lid' as well as it always gets dipped in and eaten.

      Almost skipped this one because of the 3 stars. Lesson learned. Read the reviews before deciding to make or not make. Honestly? This was great! Company thought so too. I do not quite get the reviewer (who gave 1 star) that claims the crab meat was overpowering. Come on man! It's a MAIN ingredient! Anyway, here were a couple of additions I made. See pictures.<br/>1. Added some fresh ground pepper to the mix & to the top of the finished dip.<br/>2. Added large green olives to the top only (not the mix). Why? Hmmm, mainly because I thought it added to the presentation and I LOVE green olives!

      My work mates inhaled this at Friday-night drinks. I started to make it the day before it was needed (very important to soften the onion soup mix) and used Best Ever Homemade Mayonnaise. No one found the crab overpowering -- in fact, most had trouble picking the 'secret' ingredient. I wonder whether a previous reviewer added too much crab. By the way, I am famous for dips at work -- and there are already many requests that this dip makes a repeat appearance SOON. Thanks for helping to keep my 'dippy' reputation strong. Update: I reserved some of this dip at home (it makes a big batch). Last night I warmed it and stirred it through hot pasta. Delicious!

      I didn't care for this recipe at all even though I usually can't stop eating spinach dip. The crab meat was overpowering and I think I'll just leave the spinach dip to others as always.
