Hot Crab Dip

I found this to be a simple recipe for a very different tasting dip. I tested it with crackers, but it would go good with anything that can carry the dip to your mouth. Again, a simple recipe with very good taste.
Crab Dip 001

Hot Crab Dip

  • 3 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 6 oz. can crab meat, drained
    (or fresh crab or imitation krab)
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add rest of ingredients.
Put into a small oven-proof dish and bake at 350 degrees
for 30 minutes.

The only suggestion I can make on the recipe is with the ingredients. They imply that you can buy a 3 oz package of cream cheese. I found only 8 ounce packages, and had to cut one at the 3 ounce mark. I used the canned crab meat, and I didn’t think there was enough hot sauce to give the dip any bite, and would probably use more the next time.
