A Family Favorite
This recipe has been around for years..making this dip a family holiday and anytime favorite. You can whip this dip up, in less than 5 minutes. My son Bob loves this shrimp dip. In fact, one year I made this dip to bring to a gathering him and his wife Kim were having at their house. I didn’t have anything to make at home so on my way to their house I stopped at the store and picked up what I needed. All four ingredients.
I whipped up the dip and plopped it down on the table. I opened the box of crackers and left the kitchen. A few minutes later Bobby said, “Mom, did you make the shrimp dip?” I said, “Yes” Bob said,” You haven’t made shrimp dip in for-ever…I forgot you even made shrimp dip.” Bob and his father-in-law then proceeded to eat the whole plate of shrimp dip.
No Recipe Required (Sort of)
A few weeks later Kim called and asked my for the recipe for my shrimp dip. I told her there wasn’t a recipe but if she had a pen and paper, she could write down the ingredients and the fool proof directions. When I gave her the “list” of ingredients she said, “That’s it!” and I said, “That’s it.” She made the comment that she didn’t even know shrimp came in a can and wanted to know what brand of sauce to use. I told her I always use Hoffman House.
Three ingredients is all that is needed to make this yummy dip.
- 1 8 oz package cream cheese, softened
- 1 bottle seafood/shrimp sauce
- 1 can small shrimp, drained
