Wow-this is great! I made it for the appetizer cookathon and it was a big hit at my dinner party. I used a large multigrain bread round and was out or green onions. I used 1 medium onion instead finely diced. With all the other appetizers I had prepared leaving the top on the bread round for a while helped keep it warm as the others tend to cool quickly. Many thanks-will be making again soon.

Wow, this is a KEEPER! I was searching for an artichoke/crab dip using simple ingredients that I had in my fridge and this IS IT! Very easy, just mixed together in my Ninja food processor (just a few light pulses and it's done!), and low-fat, too! LOVE the idea of baking it in a bread bowl. Bringing to our family's Italian Christmas Eve dinner tonight as one of the seven fishes.

Great! Delicious! Everyone loved it! I also used a casserole dish and baked in the oven for an hour. I served it with a sliced baguette, wheat crackers and veggies like carrots, cucumber and jicama to keep it healthy! Just YUM!
