My DH came up with this recipe, so ingredient amounts are approximate (he does it by taste). This is really good served warm in bread bowls. Spiciness can be adjusted by using more or less garlic and Worcestershire sauce.
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 3 -4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 dash pepper
- 1 (6 ounce) can crabmeat
- cheddar cheese (optional)
- Mix all ingredients except crab together until well blended.
- Fold in crab.
- Put dip into oven proof container.
- Top with cheese if desired.
- Heat at 350°F for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
- Serve warm with crackers or French bread.
- *Can also be heated in individual size bread bowls*.
this was pretty good. I just dumped EVERYTHING in the food processor, along with a bit of lemon juice, and added about 1/4 cup of sour cream. This made it extra creamy, and a big hit.
I made this dip for snacking with my hubby, but didn't care for the heaviness. In my opinion, the cream cheese needs to be blended with some mayo or sour cream in order to produce a creamier dip. The flavors of the garlic, onions and Worcestershire melded together well with the crab, but the dip just wasn't a creamy as I would have liked. Thanks, anyway.
I made this for a club meeting, and they practically licked the bowl clean. I made it with the measurements listed, except that I added double the cream cheese. When I mixed it up with only one block of cheese, it was a little strong on the green onion and Worchestershire sauce. Also, I hadn't looked at the yield, and it was not really enough for what I needed. I added another block of cheese, which made the yield just right, and also evened out the flavors. I used 3 Tablespoons of Worchestershire sauce. If I was making it just for us, I would have added more garlic. Also, I sprinkled sliced almonds on top for about the last 10 minutes in the oven, just for a little crunch. Very good, might just replace my crab dip recipe that I've used for several years.
