Hot Crab Dip Recipe

My Hot Crab Dip recipe is my most requested potluck and party dish.  It’s filled with tons of crab and a mixture of gooey cheese. Served with an assortment of cracker, tortilla chips + carrot and celery sticks.

Serving suggestions (great if you end up with leftovers):

  • Make this in small ramekins, top with panko breadcrumbs and serve as individual crab au gratin appetizers.
  • Serve over a baked potato.
  • Make a panini – top your favorite roll with crab mixture and a slice of brie and you have an awesome crab sandwich.
  • Top a Filet Mignon with crab dip.

This is by far my favorite party dip - what's not to love - it's creamy and has tons of crab meat and melted cheese.  Great for potlucks but special enough for a starter @ holiday dinners

Ingredients

  • 8 ounce package of cream cheese - softened
  • 1/2 cup non fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 - 3 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • pinch of garlic salt to taste
  • couple dashes of Tabasco
  • 1/2 - 3/4 of a pound of canned or fresh crab meat
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese or Gorgonzola crumbles
  • 1/4 cup or more Mexican or Italian cheese blend
  • Assorted crackers, tortilla chips, bread and veggies for dipping
  • up to 1 tablespoon of milk - only use if necessary

Instructions

  • Remove any cartilage from crab.
  • In a large bowl mix cream cheese, sour cream, Dijon mustard, lemon juice, garlic salt blue cheese and Tabasco until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add a little milk until it is dense and creamy. Carefully fold in the crab meat. Pour into a greased 1 quart casserole and top with cheese blend.
  • Bake @ 400 for 20 to 30 minutes, until cheese is a little browned and crab mix is bubbly. Or place the dish covered with foil grill for 15 minutes, then remove foil and cook for another 5-7 minutes until cheese is a little browned and crab mix is bubbly.

Notes

Serve with crackers, tortilla chips, bread and fresh veggies.
