About this recipe: This delicious, addictive crab dip will have your family begging for more. Serve as an appetizer with onion or garlic crackers.
This was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! The only difference I did was put in 4 tbsp of mayo and 2 cloves of garlic (minced). I used medium cheddar cheese in my recipe also. I will definetely make this crab dip from now on, this is the 3rd one I've tried off of allrecipes.com and it's been the best. - 12 Mar 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is the only crab dip I have found that is some what similar to mine. My measurements differ and has some additions. Everyone goes nuts over this: 1 small can crab meat drained, 1- 8oz. pkg. cream cheese softened, 1 c. mayonaise.( I think you could cut that in half if fat conscious, but I don't think it would be as creamy.) Can add 1/2 cup minced onion, but I never do. Also, 1 T.lemon juice, 1/2 c. grated cheddar, 1/4 tsp. dry mustard, 1 tsp. worcestershire sauce. Mix all together into pie plate. Bake 350 for 30 min. You can also use 1-6oz. pkg. frozen crab meat thawed in place of canned. You can also add a can of tiny shrimp or sprinkle slivered almonds on top before baking. Serve with a nice butter cracker for spreading. This is our favorite crab dip made this way. I gave it 5 stars cuz it is similar to this dip with some changes. Thanks! - 12 May 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I've made this recipe twice so far, to many great reviews. Although, I did make a few changes. I followed a few suggestions that I had read before. I only used half of the amount of cream cheese (this happened the first time because I didn't have enough)and half the amount of cheddar cheese. Instead of paprika and hot sauce, I used about 1.5 - 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning. Then, I seerved it up with tortilla chips. - 06 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
