Hot Crab and Cheese Dip

Recipe by Ravenseyes
READY IN: 45mins


  • 16
    ounces crabmeat (claw)
  • 8
    ounces cream cheese (room temp)
  • 1
    cup cheese (shredded, I like a sharp cheese but use what you like)
  • 14
    teaspoon bottled hot pepper sauce (you want some heat but not to take over the flavor)
  • 12
    cup shrimp (chopped raw peeled and devined)
  • 1
    tablespoon garlic (minced)
  • 1
    teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1
    teaspoon onion powder
  • 2
    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (1 tsp dry)
  • salt and pepper


  • Mix all ingredients in no special order - except to make sure you whip the cream cheese slightly.
  • Pour into a well greased oven safe bowl and bake for 30 mins or until the cheese bubbles up.
  • Serve with crustinies* or warm bread.
  • *Crustinies are simple slices of your favorite Italian bread (1/4" or less cut on an angle) rubbed with a raw clove of garlic (cut the clove in half and simply rub over each slice of bread) a drizzle of olive oil and a dash of parmesan on each slice. Bake at 325°F till golden brown.
