How do you do a DIY Holiday Party? Have some friends over and everyone brings a favorite recipe from Pinterest 🙂
For the get together, I made a crab dip recipe that I make each year for my family’s seafood themed Christmas Eve Party.
Creamy Cheesy Crab Dip
3 packages low fat cream cheese
1 pint low fat sour cream
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp dry mustard (optional)
1 tbsp old bay seasoning (to taste)
4-6 cloves minced garlic
one bag sharp cheddar cheese shredded
one pound container of backfin crabmeat
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, except for cheese. Pour contents into dish and cover with tinfoil; Heat at 350 degrees for one hour; With five minutes remaining, stir in grated cheddar
This can also be combined with chopped spinach…..
Those of you from Baltimore (Charm City!) may feel the need to triple or quadruple the amount of Old Bay called for, but I find its better to sprinkle on the final dip to add more flavor.
I used Jumbo Crab meat this time, just make sure you mix it well to break up the crab pieces.
I whip mine into an almost fluffy consistency to make sure the cream cheese is well blended.
The final product may not look exciting, but its super yummy and feeds 10-12 people easily.
