2, 8 oz. Cream Cheese Softened
8 oz. Sour Cream
4 Tbs. Mayonnaise
1 Tbs Lemon Juice
2 Cups Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese
1 Tsp Crushed Garlic
1 Finely Minced Small Onion
1 Tsp Prepared Yellow Mustard
1 Tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tbs Old Bay Seasoning (or to taste, we like more)+ more for on top
1 Tsp Horseradish grated ( I use from a store bought jar)
1 Tbs Parsley Flakes + more for on top
1 Tsp Paprika + more for on top
1 Can 1lb. LUMP Crab Meat ( Must be Lump)
Cream the softened cream cheese with the sour cream & mayo. Beat in everything EXCEPT the Cheese & Crab. Beat till well combined. Now stir in by hand the cheese mixing well. GENTLY FOLD IN the crab meat trying to not break up the nice large pieces. Fold in well. Butter a nice deep casserole dish. Gently spoon crab mixture into the dish. Sprinkle the top with parsley flakes, more Old Bay & paprika. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 45 minutes. Serve piping hot with hot crusty bread pieces or a very good cracker! HEAVENLY !
You may make this in a buttered crock pot cooked on low for 4 hours & it will still be HEAVENLY !
I just tried this dip on a toasted Everything Bagel for a late supper, DIVINE! This would be great for brunch or lunch too!
