Based on the other reviews, I added a clove of crushed garlic to the onions. I also cut the cream cheese in half. It was still a little bland, so next time I'll probably double the old bay.
Sorry, but this didn't work out for me as well as I had hoped. I found it to be a little bland, and the crabmeat sort of gets "lost" in all the other ingredients.
This recipe was awesome! I added more crab than called for. And, instead of using fresh crab I used canned lump white crab meat. It was great!!!!!!!!!!!
Excellent - to only serve a few, I halved the crab, artichoke and cream cheese and kept the seasonings the same (but doubled the Old Bay), along with adding some garlic to sautee along with the onions. Exactly what I was looking for as a hot appetizer for Xmas Eve. Thanks!
I used two cloves of minced garlic, however it still seemed a bit bland. So I added another 5 dashes of tabasco and sprinkled approximately 3/4 teaspoon of Tony Chachere's on top before baking. I also used fresh Pecorino romano instead of parmesan. Once it was spiced up, it was a great hit and I had lots of people asking for the recipe.
Made this for the super ball party. Was a big hit! I did add a clove of crushed minced garlic.I would give the baking dish a spray of pam next time making this.
