This is a great crab ball! I added a few ingredients though and kicked it up a notch!! I added chopped green onions along with the onions this recipe calls for and I added chopped green pepperand I also added Accent to enhance the flavor and added a dash of dillweed,old bay seasoning,a touch of beau monde seasoning and I added freshly ground black pepper and sprinkled celery seeds over top after the crab ball hardened. I only used 1Tbs of horseradish though and so glad I did cause the crab ball had enough hot flavor. This is a keeper for sure. We loved it! Thanks for sharing your recipe Fluffy!

I left out the horseradish (personal preference) and added green onions, green pepper and Tony's Chachere Cajun Seasoning for a little heat and more flavor. Great additions! We enjoyed it served atop pita and bagel chips!

I think I did something wrong, because mine was a dip instead of a ball, but it's still 5 stars. Fantastic taste. I didn't use any hot sauce because no one else in the family likes it, but it was still great. Thanks.
