I made this dip for a Christmas Eve buffet and it went over very well. I served it hot as suggested. However I also tried the leftovers after they had been refrigerated and I think I like the recipe better as a cold spread for crackers rather than as a hot dip! Also recipe should just say 3 oz. package of cream instead of 6 tablespoons which is kind of confusing. Read More

No Old Bay? I added old bay. Much more Maryland style if thats what youre looking for. Also added dry mustard. Did not like the minced onion. You have to have OldBay or J.O.s crab seasoning in crab dip. I think it is wrong to make it without it. Read More

I used light cream cheese and light mayo for this recipe and it was still delicious! I also added 1 tablespoon of horseradish and 1 clove of minced garlic for a little more kick. My husband gave it rave reviews! Read More

Very good but a bit bland for my taste. I jazzed it up with 1/4c finely grated parmesan reggiano 1T horseradish and a bit more chopped onion. This is a great basic recipe. Read More

Great recipe. The original version turned out quite bland so I made a few changes. I added garlic black pepper and a bit more hot pepper sauce. Great flavor and really disappeared! Read More

My husband hogged this all..I did get to try it but it was only after I caught him in the garage eating it away from everyone else..Well he did have help a man who comes to our house never likes to eat the dips that anyone brings but let me tell ya he got busted with this one. The only thing is that I added more cream cheese and I made it in the microwave and it still came out great..Thanks Read More

This is a great recipe! It's easy fast and tastes great. I did add about 1/2 cup of mozarella cheese to make it a little creamier. I will definately make this one again and again. Read More
