Creamy Crab and Bacon Endive Boats

After seeing this recipe prepared on an episode of Food Network’s “Farmhouse Rules,” I knew I wanted to make it for my upcoming book club potluck.  It’s so easy to throw together and pretty much requires zero cooking (especially since I cook my bacon in the oven), you’ll be done in 20 minutes and only have one bowl to clean.

I left out the celery, because it’s not my thing.  I think I made the right choice, but that’s up to you.  Usually crab dip is served warm and with cheese.  I thought this version, made with a mayo/sour cream base and featuring lemon and tons of fresh herbs was a cool summer take.  Also, the crab to dip ratio is thumbs up.

Also there’s this: anything with crab sounds fancy pants.  And then if you serve something in endive boats?  Extra fancy pants.
