This is a baked crab dip made with cream cheese, crabmeat, and seasonings. It's very easy to make and you probably have most of the ingredients on hand. Drain the crab meat thoroughly before you combine it with the cream cheese. 

Serve this crab dip hot with crackers, bagel chips, or vegetable sticks.

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese (softened)
  • 1 can (6 ounces) crabmeat (well-drained)

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 dash paprika
  • Garnish: 1 tablespoon green onions (finely sliced) or parsley (fresh chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 375 F.
