"This recipe can be served hot or cold with a variety of different crackers or bread. It can be placed in a loaf of hollowed out sourdough bread; the bread can be used for dipping. Don't heat dip when in the bread; bread will become soggy. Heat the dip, and then fill bread."

I have been making this for years, from a recipe a friend gave me. The ONLY change, is we add 3 tbs mayo to add a little creaminess. We eat this on lsices of toasted baquette. I takes slices of baquette, spritz w/EVOO and toast under broiler and when I have time rub garlic cloves over the hot toasted slices. YUM!
This was pretty good - could have been a 4 or 5 star if I had the green onions. I subbed a shallot and the flavor was pretty strong. I also added some tobasco but not enough to really make the dip spicy. I may try again but will definitely use the green onion.
This crab dip went over very well. It was gone in no time! I did change it a little bit. I doubled the amount of crab meat. I used 2 cans for a total of 12 ounces. Absolutely NO imitation crab meat ever! I doubled the amount of green onions and to add a little flavor and creaminess I added a 2-3 tablespoons of Miracle Whip. Also a couple of dashes of Red Hot didn't hurt. I will definitely make this again.
Big hit at our Superbowl party-our vegetarian friends loved it!
Served this both hot and cold. It was a hit either way, although I perfered to eat this at room temp.
This was a hit at my house. But I couldn't resist adding a few drops of hot sauce for more pizzazz.
Very good dip. I added grated sharp cheddar cheese and used real crab, then baked it in the oven for 15 minutes. Next time I will use less garlic. Thanks
I 2.5 times this recipe and substitute 1 lb of real crab meat for the imitation. Everyone raves over it. It's the request for all the parties I'm invited to. I always serve it hot. Sometimes I put in bread bowl, other times just serve with crackers. Either way it's terrific.
