Surprise Spread

This is an appetizer which my friend, Debbie, has brought to functions we've had as friends. I enjoy making it because it is so quick, easy and who does not like to dip crackers or chips while waiting for dinner!

Ingredients:


8 oz cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
200 grams fresh or frozen cooked shrimp, crumbled
1 c seafood cocktail sauce
2 c mozzarella or Edam cheese
1 green pepper, chopped
2 green onions, chopped
1 tomato, diced

Method:

  1. Blend cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise.
  2. Spread into a serving plate with a bit of a dip in it.
  3. Layer the rest of the ingredients in order given.
  4. Serve with crackers, chips or tortillas

  3. This has long been a favourite of my son's who has loved shrimp since he was a little guy.
    If you keep a package of shrimp or imitation crab in the freezer, it takes only minutes to serve up this great appy.

  4. So ladies - advice please!! Any tips on how to keep rollkuchen fresh and crisp when made a little bit ahead to take to a barbecue? I always find it's a little 'soft' after just a few hours.

  6. It's always great having a handful of layered dips in the old repertoire.

    Yesterday I was in need of such a recipe for dinner, and just then saw your blog post with the perfect thing! So I made it as an starter for our guests last night, and served it with thin slices of baguette. It was wonderful!!

    The best part is that there are a few leftovers to be nibbled upon today.

    Thanks for the recipe and the perfect timing!

  9. This is definitely a tried and true favourite at our place, it's the go to dip for us and always gets rave reviews - originally from the Best of Bridge.
