I just made this for our Christmas eve snacks before dinner, it was just ok. I followed the directions exactally with the exception of not adding the almonds. It ended up very dry, it also took an extra 20 minutes to heat through. I ended up adding more cream chese little by little until it was the consistancy i wanted. It ended up being another 8 oz. After that it was much better and we all enjoied it, i think i may add a touch of lemon juice just brighten it up a bit.
This was really good. I used a pound of crab and also added some salad shrimp. After it was made, it was dry. I should have used less crab since I was putting in some shrimp. But, it was still great tasting - just not as creamy.
I added a 1/4 lb. of baby shrimp to this recipe. Very good, enjoyed by all.
I think that a medium onion was a bit much. My dip wound up tasting mostly of onions. All lot was also left after the Superbowl.
I didn't care for this dip. I have another recipe that has mayo in it that I like better. I think I will stick to that one. Just my preference I guess. There was quite a bit left over at the party.
This crab dip is OUTSTANDING! I was looking for something to serve with artisan bread this evening as we were having a guest for dinner. I made this as directed however I only had a small can of crab meat so mine had a little less in it. I did not put almonds in it. I also added cut up artichokes and parmeasan cheese and I sauted the onion and artichokes in butter before adding to casserole dish. Baked in oven about 20 minutes. The dip was gone by the end of dinner and my guest wanted the recipe. He said he has never liked crab dip before until he had this one. Thanks for posting this recipe.
I used to make this in the late 70's... a pat of butter on the top, stirred in, adds just a bit more to the already delicious flavor. served with Triscuts perfect!
I made this for an Easter appetizer. Very delicious and easy to make.
Super Yummy! I also used green onions. I ate every last bit! My husband really enjoyed it too. What an easy delicious snack. Thanks for sharing.
