Just Like, Jack Astor's Crab Dip - Copycat

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Giovanna Luvs Disney

I used to work at Jack Astor's and this dip was one of their best selling appetizers. This is great for parties and simple to make, and people won't think it wasn't simple! I'm making it for my Christmas party tomorrow, so I will try to have a picture of it.

This was some what of a disappointment to me. My guests and I were trying to figure out what it reminded us of....and finally someone said "TUNAMELTS"! Only half the dish was eaten (and it was the only thing I put out), so I told my husband he could make sandwiches out of it for lunch the next day. Different, but not what I was shooting for.
