I used this recipe as a jumping off point, I also added chopped spinach (fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) and instead of canned crab I got the crab from the seafood section of my grocery store, it was only a dollar more and I had plenty of crab. I used half swiss and half parmesan cheese. I also used mayo because of preference and actually added a tablespoon more. Finally, I finished it with panko bread crumbs and paprika during the last five minutes of cooking. With my doctoring this dip was a hit at superbowl.

Eh... I added spinach and 1/2 swiss, half pepper jack to give it a bit of a kick... also added some old bay, however, I still found this bland. I don't really like this recipe. Not sure how it recieved this many high reviews.

This is a keeper! Served it for my company and it was gone in a flash! Didn't have Miracle Whip on hand so used mayo - turned out fine. Topped with toasted slivered almonds and served with wheat & water crackers.

Yummy! I added chopped artichoke hearts,Old Bay seasoning, paprika and a little garlic salt. My neighbor and I ate it with Club crackers and a baguette. She took some home. Good stuff!

This was very simple to make, but needed to be kicked up a notch! I added about 2 tablespoons of hot sauce because the dip was kind of bland if you stuck to the exact recipe. I also used the lump crab meat instead of the canned. The lump is much better quality. I will make this again, everyone enjoyed it.

I used imitation crab from the seafood dept and ran it through the food processor. Honestly, the dip seemed a little bland and too thick. More onion or perhaps a seasoning would have helped. Next time I would add a little milk to it and try some Old Bay or other seasonings.

Very easy to make and quite tasty. Like another reviewer, I used mayo instead of Miracle Whip. Other than that, I followed the recipe.
