Hot Crab Dip
I posted about my Crab Stuffed Baked Potatoes that I made for Christmas Eve dinner, and in that post I said the filling made more that you’ll need for the potatoes, so to bake it up and serve it as a dip. This filling is so good that it deserves a place of its own. So, I bring you, Hot Crab Dip!
This stuff is so good. We stood around eating it instead of making lunch, and it was gone lickety-split! I would totally make this for watching the game!
It’s easy to make too. Simple to just mix all the ingredients together and pop in the oven.
You can make it with real crab as well, but sometimes it’s nice to just have the option of not getting fresh crab.
