Paula Deen's Hot Crab Dip

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Lightly Toasted

From Nov 09 issue of Good Housekeeping, featuring Paula Deen. There are other recipes for her crab dips on here, but this one is very quick and simple, with ingredients that I typically have on hand. I used nuefchatel cheese, and fat free Miracle Whip for a low-fat alternative, and the flavor didn't suffer at all.

I have been making this recipe for years. It came from a elementary school cookbook I purchased 18 years ago. It is very popular with my family, and requested often. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes crab dip.
