Recipe was a good foundation, and then I added extra lump crab meat, some well cooked bacon bits, parsley, the juice of one whole lemon and a handful of both mozzarella and cheddar cheese. I served the dip with sea salt bagel chips. It was a huge hit! Read More

Oh my god. This is the best crab dip ever. I used the imitation crabmeat and it is wonderful. I took it to work one day and everybody loved it. My boyfriend keeps asking me to make it like every other day. DELICIOUS!! Read More

I made this for my yearly 4th of July party! I didn't find Old Bay Seasoning but added Tony Chachere's Creole seasoning and some garlic and extra crab. It gave it a little kick and was a huge hit at the party!!! Read More

Wonderful recipe! I used canned crab meat and it was great! Using a mixer was kinda messy though. Next time I will try to just "blend it well". Was a hit at Thanksgiving! Even my mother-in-law loved it! And the little bit that was left over tasted great the next day! I just reheated it in the microwave. DEFINITELY a keeper!! Sharon Read More

I fixed this crab spread for Christmas eve as an appetizer & it was great servered it on crackers. I used fresh crab claw called Phillips crab found in refrigerated section of seafood department. Not cheap about 8.00 but worth it & I only used half as I was making this for only 2 people but still had leftovers that warmed great in the microwave. Will definately serve this again. Read More

I took this to a family holiday gathering and it went over wonderfully! Very good dip with crackers or sourdough bread triangles. I used canned crab but think it would be better with fresh. Read More

This was a huge hit at a party; I used backfin crabmeat which costs a lot but was worth it; I also used the smallest artichoke hearts available (in a can). The dish was elegant; I used a fancy pie plate and toasted pita chips (found at the supermarket) for the dipping "utensils" garlic or plain bagel chips would also do well. Read More

I'm giving this recipe 3 stars because I felt it needed more flavor. I'd only give my change a 4 star. First of all I agree you MUST double the crabmeat. I also added cheese like another reviewer suggested put in some scallions and increased my seasonings. Personally I like my dips with a bit of zing. I would make this again but next time I'd add a small can of green chiles to spice it up and maybe some jalapeno monterary jack instead of the mozza and cheddar that I used. Good recipe just needs some tweaking it lacks flavor. Read More
