I took a break from Snack Food Sunday last week, but I am back this week with this delicious dip! If you like crab rangoons, you will like this dip. I had this with tortilla chips, but it would be equally delicious with wonton chips, crackers or even baby carrots and celery sticks.

Warm Crab Dip

  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 (6 ounce) can canned crab meat, drained
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for the top
  • Old Bay Seasoning or paprika

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, mix together cream cheese, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice.

Rinse the crab meat and remove any pieces of shell. Add the crab meat to the cream cheese mixture, along with the green onion and 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese. Fold together.

Spoon mixture into a medium baking dish. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese and a small amount of Old Bay over the top.  Bake 15 to 20 minutes in preheated oven. Serve warm.

Oh, crap dip! I don’t cook with crab that often but this would definitely be a dip I could devour :)
