If you serve this in sliced pita bread it taste like the hot crab sandwiches served at state fairs . Good with chips, too! To prepare in the microwave, soften the cream cheese in a microwave safe dish. Follow the steps for combining the ingredients. Microwave on medium for 4 to 6 minutes.

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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