This is my DH's favorite holiday appetizer. My MIL makes it every year only difference being she adds 1/4 tsp garlic salt. I couldn't find the recipe this morning and was thrilled when I saw you had it posted, Thanks so much for posting! Nick's Mom

This layered crab spread has been a family favorite for ages! I often use onion powder instead of raw onion and sometimes, when I am feeling a bit saucy, I add a touch of horseradish in with the cream cheese. Make sure to provide sturdy crackers and raw veggies.

Never a spoonful left! I've been serving this at parties for years & it is always a favorite. I omit the mayo and add some garlic powder. I also add chopped green onions (tops & bottoms) to the cream cheese mixture. I serve with Wheat Thins and Sociable crackers. This deserves 10 stars.
