Very Easy to make and LOVED the fact that it contained NO MAYO!!!! First recipe I've found that did not call for it. I made this for an office pot-luck and everyone loved it! Will definitely make this again and it will become my "go to" recipe for hot crab dip!!

I would say this is good, not amazing, but is very easy to put together. The biggest appeal to this recipe was the lack of mayo. As a non-mayo person, it is really hard to find a good crab dip that doesn't call for it! I think you could make this better by simply adding salt & pepper, as well as perhaps using fresh garlic instead of powder. I will make again but will make enhancements for more flavor.

Fantastic! I had to substitute with dehydrated onion flakes and regular mustard, but it was still rich and delicious!

Fantastic crab dip. It's a Maryland thing I guess I made this for New Years today it was delicious ? Thank you for this amazing recipe. My husband and I lived in Norfolk Va when we were in the military anyway we would often drive to Baltimore to eat crab. This is better than any restaurants I've had since moving to Pittsburgh Pa. My husband and I have been looking for a good recipe for 30 years. Thank you.

Excellent. Simple, flavorful, and (thank god) doesn't require commercial mayo!

Very good cab dip. I used fresh lump crab meat, not canned. I used a little extra chopped onions and garlic powder, but otherwise stuck to the recipe as written. The Old Bay sprinkled on top adds awesome flavor, so I'd recommend using that f you have it. This is wonderful hot or even at room temperature. Thanx for sharing!

If you tend to like food that others think is bland, you'll like this. It is really very bland. I tried adding more Old Bay Seasoning and it helped a little, but not enough. Next time, I'm going to try a crab dip that has a lot of different ingredients to add flavor. I made it exactly as it is written. I'm confused by these rave reviews.
