This was a HUGE hit at my Halloween party - I will make it for every party (minus the brain mold!) I used 4 Tbspns of Tabasco for plenty of kick, and used lobster-flavored surimi to keep costs down.
I made mine in a bowl with saran wrap on the bottom. I flipped it over and out of the bowl and shaped it to look like a brain by using a pencil to make it look real. Everyone reached for some and before I knew it the brain was gone! Good thing I got some before it was all gone!
Another great Halloween recipe from LBK! You must love Halloween as much as I do. My guests went nuts for this! I served with wheat thins and whole wheat crackers. Very good!
Great recipe. I made it for my Halloween party and everyone loved the crab brain. I have given the recipe to several people from the party. It is a keeper!! Thanks
I cut the recipe in 1/2 and used 1 lb. shrimp and 1/2 lb. lump crabmeat. It was awesome and liked by all! The teenagers thought the brain was really cool and couldn't wait to take a dip!
I served the dip with Ritz crackers, and they were eaten until the plate was clean!
The guests at my Halloween party dug in and ate every bit of this dip. Didn't take them long either. It was great! Thanks for sharing!
I had a Halloween party over the weekend and this dip was a big hit with everyone! I served it with bagel and pita chips and I I used the shrimp. Also I used low sodium soup and low fat cream cheese. I also sprinkled in a couple of shakes of Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning. It was excellent! I used the bowl and saran wrap idea and it worked great. It made me look like such a brain! (he he)
I was hoping for a really tasty dip, but this actually isn't as good as I was led to believe. A bit too salty, a bit too mayonnaise-y; it's okay, but I'm very glad I tried it out before my party as a test run. I used creole seasoning, which may have been a part of the problem with the salty factor, (and any canned soup is going to be sky high in sodium also) but still, I was expecting a much more vibrant blend of flavors. My testers all agreed, so this one is just okay as far as I'm concerned. If salt is a concern, using a low sodium canned soup might help this out.
My neighbors couldn't stay away from this dip at my annual neighborhood Halloween party last weekend. I made several of Linda's Halloween recipes as they all sound so good! This was another hit, and one I will be repeating next year. I used the creole seasoning and I might try Old Bay seasoning next time and see how everyone likes that. Thank you Linda for another great find!
