My Favorite Crab Dip

I’ve been making this crab dip for as long as I can remember, and I’ve made many others, but I always return to this one.  I think it’s the perfect blend of flavors – crab, creamy cream cheese, tanginess (horseradish and tabasco).  I’ll likely double the recipe for my tailgate crowd.

6 oz can crab meat
2 – 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
2 TBSP onion, grated
2 TBSP milk
1/2 tsp horseradish
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp hot sauce (I use tabasco)
Worchestershire sauce to taste
1/3 cup sliced almonds (optional)
Paprika, for sprinkling
Crackers, for dipping


  1. Cream the cream cheese in a food processor, then combine all ingredients (except almonds and paprika).
  2. Place in a baking dish and top with almonds and sprinkle with paprika.
  3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes, and then serve hot with your favorite crackers.

***NOTE: This dip can be made a couple days in advance, then heat prior to serving.
