Shrimp Spread

2 cans of small shrimp, drain one can only
1 qt. jar of mayonnaise
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 small bunch of green onions, chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
black pepper

In a sauce pan blend soup and cream cheese until warm (don't boil). Take off heat and add mayonnaise, shrimp including liquid from 1 can and onions blending well. Dilute the gelatine in 1 T of cold water. Stir into dip. Add black pepper to taste. Pour the dip into serving dish. Refrigerate covered for several hours or at least overnight.

This dip comes out thick and creamy so use heavy crackers for serving. This is also good served with party breads. You can also sprinkle a few green onion tops and a few small shrimp on top so the dish can be identified as a shrimp spread. To change this use 2 small cans of crab meat, draining one only. You might want to add a few small diced green peppers and/or celery.
