This is an easy pretty appetizer dip that I have been making for years...Very pretty during the holidays or Valentines Day..
- Mix crab meat and cream cheese together. Spread into a 9 inch size pie pan or similiar size dish. Pour cocktail sauce over crab meat mixture to cover completely. Sprinkle with parsley. Refrigerate at least 1 hour to blend flavors. Serve with assorted crackers.
I used real lump crab meat for this recipe (I thought about saving some $$ and going with imitation, but after one glance at the ingredients and I couldn't) and it was AWFUL. I am embarrassed that I brought it to my boyfriend's family Thanksgiving. It was super fishy, smelly, and just all around terrible. Maybe the imitation would have tasted better but I won't try. Beware of this easy-looking recipe. :(
Super easy and yummy appetizer spread! I used a full 8oz of real lump crabmeat. I thinks its very important to use a good-quality cocktail sauce, or even homemade cocktail sauce. This get better and better the longer it chills. Thanx for sharing!
Great appetizer and easy to make too!
