Hot Crab Dip Courtesy:

This crab dip is one of my favorites! It is best served hot, right out of the oven.  It can be a bit rich tasting for some folks, but my friends and I like it as a nice treat. Consider pairing it with a mellow white wine.

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
2 Tbsp. cream
2 green onions, finely chopped
2 tsp. white horseradish
1 can (4 ½ ounces) lump crab meat, rinsed and drained
¼ cup parmesan cheese, grated


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Butter a small, shallow baking dish.
  3. Mix cream cheese, cream, green onion, and horseradish until well combined. Fold in crab meat.
  4. Transfer mixture to prepared dish. Smooth top and sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake 20-30 minutes until hot and bubbly.
  6. Serve Hot.

Food Mingle Blog Alternatives and Substitutions:

  • Let the cream cheese soften at room temperature before mixing it with the other ingredients.
  • Mix ½ of the grated cheese into the mixture, sprinkle the other ½ on top before baking.
  • Add diced green and red peppers as garnish (as shown in picture).
  • Serve with cut vegetables, crackers or pita bread.

Yield: 8 servings
