7 1/2 ounces
canned crabmeat, drained
hot pepper sauce
I made this dip for a Christmas Eve buffet and it went over very well. I served it hot, as suggested. However, I also tried the leftovers after they had been refrigerated, and I think I like the recipe better as a cold spread for crackers rather than as a hot dip! Also, recipe should just say 3 oz. package of cream instead of 6 tablespoons, which is kind of confusing.
No Old Bay? I added old bay. Much more Maryland style if thats what youre looking for. Also added dry mustard. Did not like the minced onion. You have to have OldBay or J.O.s crab seasoning in crab dip. I think it is wrong to make it without it.
I used light cream cheese and light mayo for this recipe, and it was still delicious! I also added 1 tablespoon of horseradish and 1 clove of minced garlic for a little more kick. My husband gave it rave reviews!
Very good, but a bit bland for my taste. I jazzed it up with 1/4c finely grated parmesan reggiano, 1T horseradish and a bit more chopped onion. This is a great basic recipe.
Great recipe. The original version turned out quite bland so I made a few changes. I added garlic, black pepper and a bit more hot pepper sauce. Great flavor and really disappeared!
Awesome stuff! My kids love it, my friends love it. You cant go wrong and it is really simple.
I've never had crab dip before, so I tried this last night. I wasn't crazy about the flavor (and I LOVE crab)....I added the horseradish like other suggested...I just still wasn't too crazy about it. The hubby like it though!
My husband hogged this all..I did get to try it but it was only after I caught him in the garage eating it away from everyone else..Well he did have help a man who comes to our house never likes to eat the dips that anyone brings but let me tell ya he got busted with this one. The only thing is that I added more cream cheese and I made it in the microwave and it still came out great..Thanks
