This creamy white cheddar cheese shrimp dip is so full of flavor! A blend of three cheeses are tossed with plump shrimp and baked for a melt in your mouth dip. Serve with toasted baguette slices, that are lightly seasoned and you have yourself one delicious appetizer!

My awesome sister in-laws and I happened to order the Shrimp & Crab dip from Uno’s one time. I enjoyed the dip so much that I wanted to recreate the dip! There was something about the cheesy dip and toasted baguette slices… It just goes so well together. The cheddar cheese is so mild and does not overpower the dip in any way. However I don’t quite remember tasting the crab meat in the Uno’s version, besides my husband isn’t really into the crab imitation stuff. This is so similar to Uno’s version (minus the crab meat). Now you can certainly add crab meat but I think it tastes amazingly delicious with just the shrimp. I highly recommend trying this dip! The seasonings and the cheese blend are just right to create a beautiful and super tasty dip!
