  • 1/2 lb large shrimp peeled, deveined & roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of cream
  • 2 tbs sour cream
  • 2 tbs butter
  • 2 tbs flour
  • 4 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • 2 tbs Parmesan cheese for topping
  • large bread bowl or a smaller boule style loaf of bread


  • In a small skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic, cooking until fragrant and lightly browned.
  • Whisk the flour in until a smooth roux is formed. Add the cream, sour cream, cheese, & a pinch of salt. Cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture just starts to boil.
  • Remove the cheese sauce from heat, stir in the shrimp, and set aside.
  • Hollow out your bread bowl. Pour the shrimp and cheese mixture into the bread bowl & sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.


Serve this with buttery crackers, bits of crusty bread, and as the dip gets low- use the bread bowl itself.
If you don't have a bread bowl, or don't want to use one- you can bake the dish in a small ceramic dish instead.
