Warm Crab Dip

Mmmmmm. Warm Crab Dip. Is there anything better? I was once at someone’s house and they refused to share their crap dip recipe with me, so I surreptitiously procured it from their recipe file. That is how seriously I take crab dip. Ten years later, this is my own recipe, and it is sized for a party. But this recipe can easily be cut in half for fewer people – like I did for the photo.

Warm Crab Dip

  • 1 lb fresh lump crab meat
  • 2 (8oz) pkgs cream cheese
  • 4 T mayonnaise
  • 2 t dijon mustard (I prefer Grey Poupon Country Dijon)
  • 1 t horseradish
  • 1 T old bay
  • 2 c sharp shredded cheddar, divided
  • 8 oz sour cream

Combine all ingredients, but with only 1 cup of the cheddar; top with the second cup of cheddar. Nuke 6 min or bake at 325 for 45 min. Serve with Tostitos scoops or crackers.
