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?
