  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a glass loaf pan with cooking spray.
  2. Mix cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, and seafood seasoning together in a bowl. Gently fold crabmeat into cheese mixture; pour into the prepared loaf pan and top with Cheddar cheese.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until dip is bubbling, about 20 minutes. Toast baguette slices on oven rack during the last 5 minutes of baking the dip.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • An alternative is to spread the mixture on halved French bread, top with cheese and bake until the cheese bubbles. It is best not to use claw meat since it has a saltier taste, nor imitation crab, since that is fish and ultimately you would just have hot fish dip. Neufchatel cheese may be used instead of cream cheese; it is less fattening and has a comparable taste.

This was really watery. I expected it to be a little more firm. I even baked it longer. I thought it needed more flavor too. Sorry, won't be making again.

Ingredients say creamy salad dressing. Instructions say mayo. Are we talking miracle whip or actual salad dressing. Or is it a typo and just mayo?

This crab dip is a winner. Used canned lump crab meat from Costco, about 2-1/2 cups. Also added 1 jalapeno pepper, deseeded & diced and 1 teaspoon paprika. Served over warm Italian Salt & Pepper...

This is a FABULOUS recipe. Made it and it was a big hit. Served it at room temp and no one got sick. I know it would great hot too. You can't go wrong with this recipe.

Yum! Looking for more flavor? I added 1 teaspoon smoked paprika, doubled the old bay, 3 tablespoons chopped green onion and mixed the cheddar cheese in so it wouldn't harden on top as others sug...

Drain your crab or it will be wet. I HATE it when Good recipes are trashed by BAD cooks who have NO concept of what they like to eat! >:P
