Creamy Crimini Dip

This party dip is decadent and delicious.


  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound crimini (baby portabello) mushrooms caps, diced
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 splash good quality dry sherry
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • A palmful of flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 package rye bread party squares


Toast the almonds in a small skillet until lightly browned. Remove and reserve.

Heat a medium size skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and melt it, then add the mushrooms and sauté until tender. Add the flour to the mushrooms and cook for a minute or two, add the sherry and then stir in the half-and-half and cook until thickened. Season the dip with the salt and pepper.

Remove the dip from the heat, stir in the almonds, nutmeg and parsley, and pour into a serving bowl. Serve immediately with the rye bread party squares.
