  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
