My husband and I LOVE this dip! The only reason I put 4 rather than 5 stars is because we add quite a bit of parmesan cheese to the original recipe. Otherwise, it is fantastic. We have served it many times to guests, and it is always a hit. Thanks for a great recipe.

This was okay, but nothiong special. I thought the worchestershire flavor was overpowering and the crab was lost. Also, it could have used a little kick.

This was really good and rich. I did add a little mozzarella cheese about 1/4 cup to it though. And I sprinkled a little grated parmesan cheese on top. Really good recipe though I suspect the quality of crab meat you use makes all the difference. I used Kroger's "private selections" lump crab meat and was pleased with the quality for about 5 bucks for a 6 oz. can. Served alongside Tostitos restaurant style tortilla chips.

After a while we stopped putting it on crackers and just scooped it right into our mouths on spoons! It was so good we were embarassed at how much we ate. I highly highly highly recommend this recipe. You can add a bit of chopped celery to it if you like.

I used half an 8 oz container of spreadable light cream cheese, light mayo, no onion, 1 can of crab, and a lot of lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. I just microwaved the mixture for 4 minutes, stirring halfway. It came out perfect with warm (microwaved) whole wheat pita bread. So easy, and so delicious! Thank you!

Excellent! I served it to 15 adults and 6 children with "wheat thin" crackers and I should have made a double batch.

I baked this in a hollowed out round bread loaf, reserving the the removed bread chunks for dipping, and baked it with the heated filling 'till the bread was lightly toasted on top. Yummy! Thanks
