Hot Baked Crab Dip

Hot Baked Crab Dip

In my opinion, humble though it may be, you just can’t have too many dip recipes in your collection. This is another one of those oldies that we used to make way back when for most any occasion, or no occasion at all really. Any time you need to feed a group of people standing or sitting around picking at food — this is your go-to recipe.

This old reliable recipe for hot baked crab dip uses ingredients that you probably have on hand right now. There’s nothing exotic in there that you can’t find at any grocery store no matter where you live. It takes maybe 10 minutes to mix up and you can adjust the horseradish to suit your tastes. I keep it on the mild side for BeeBop and sometimes stir in a bit extra in a separate dish for me.

Hope you enjoy this little retro revival!

This might be a retro recipe but I have yet to serve Hot Crab Dip at a function that it hasn’t been one of the very to go. But then, I do live in Maryland and you know how we are about anything to do with crabs.

Thank you so much for including crab meat in your recipe. That fake stuff is just that. Fake. My daughter loves it but me? Not so much.

I remember this dip…and I remember it was good. It would warm my tootsies I bet since I am FREEZING! I’ll be there soon (or wishing I could at least).

No fake crab around here! And if I could get it fresh, I’d use that. The canned makes a passable substitute. And…I can’t believe you’re already having SNOW there! Wow. It’s 85 degrees here right now :-) Not that I’d rub it in or anything.

You’re welcome, Nicole! If you’ve never tried it, I hope you will. I never met anyone who didn’t like it :-)

Can never go wrong with the classics! Thanks for the reminder of a really good dip-but really so much more than that!

This looks awesome! And I totally agree-you can never have too much dip! I don’t think I’ve ever made crab dip (just devoured other people’s) so I will have to try this!
