Morganna's Brain Dip
The lovely Morganna created this recipe to fill one of those novelty "brain" gelatin molds (like this one, from Anatomical). However, it's delicious in a less-disgusting form as well.

1 can tomato soup
2 packages of cream cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup each finely chopped celery and green onion
1/2-3/4 cups choped fresh parsley
1 package of Knox Gelatin dissolved in 1/3 cup hot water
2 cans crabmeat
2 cans baby shrimp
Cayenne to taste

Use mayonnaise to grease your brain mold. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, mix together all ingredients (except gelatin) and add spice to taste. Heat it until everything melts together and gets all bubbly, then add gelatin mixture. Stir well, pour into mold and refrigerate overnight.

Voila!! There's usually a little extra that won't fit in the mold so you can snack on this stuff while warm too!

Variation: There's an alcoholic/dessert recipe for a "White Russian" brain on the Fabulous Foods site.
