This is a good spread to serve on crackers or as a dip, discovered at a friend's party many years ago. This is equally good as a hot crab canape, reducing the amount of bacon and adding a bit of prepared horseradish.

- 1 1⁄2 cups crab, cooked and flaked

- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, cubed
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
