Holiday Crab Dip

No need to limit this dip to the holidays, though.  This is an uber-easy, uber-quick, uber-yummy dip you can make anytime.  Anytime you want to be the party rock star, that is!  (It disappears quickly, you might want to make a double batch!)

How ’bout that cute little crabby baking dish?!  We saw it at an art store in North Carolina and I just had to have it.  It came with this recipe!  Bonus!

  • 3 oz lump crab meat
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened (low-fat or non-fat is ok)
  • 1 TBSP mayonnaise
  • 2 TBSP shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 TBSP finely chopped onion
  • 1/8 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/8 tsp curry powder
  • 2 drops hot sauce (like Tabasco)
  • 1 TBSP fresh lime juice

Preheat oven to 325F.

Gently mix all ingredients together, to preserve the lumps of crab as much as possible.

Place in a small casserole or baking dish and sprinkle with additional Parmesan.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until browned and bubbly.  Enjoy with bread, crackers, celery, carrots or a spoon!


That’s it! Be warned that this dip DOES seem to disappear.  I made the mistake of setting it out as guests started to arrive at a party while I finished up some other yummies.  By the time I turned around, it was nearly gone!  Maybe it had something to do with this cute little crabby dish.

What a face, eh?  I love it when I can cook or serve something in art.  Do you have a special serving dish that makes your food even yummier?
