Why I Love This Recipe

Great to bring to parties, or as an appetizer (contains shell fish in case of allergies) this recipe is using real crab meat.

Ingredients You'll Need

Block or container cream cheese, less a couple tablespoons
1 can crab meat, drained but leave a little juice
4 heaping tablespoons hot horseradish
1 tablespoon (or more) lemon juice
1 teaspoon Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 cup milk (or less to thin the mixture before baking)


Cream together softened cream cheese with an almost fully drained can of crab meat (allow some juice), add all other ingredients in a small baking dish tip: my favourite is a round shallow 1 pt., ideally mixture is under 2 inches thick spread-out, add milk to consistency of thin dip to allow for evaporation during baking

Bake at 300 degrees for about 40 minutes / a little brown at edges

Serve warm with crackers or veggies

Pairs Well With

Crackers / Veggies - Bacon Dippers are great with this dip, but any cracker and veggies can be dipped.
