This "Hot Crab Dip" is cheesy and delicious! Spread it on crackers, dip tortilla chips in it or spread it on sliced baquettes! This is a great party appetizer or game day treat! It's also really easy. Make it up the night before and just bake the next day right before your gathering. Here is what you will need:
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
3-4 green onions, sliced thin and including the green tops
1 cup shredded mozzarella, divided
1/2 parmesan cheese, divided
1 tsp. hot sauce (I used Tabasco)
pinch of cayenne pepper to taste
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
8 oz. crab meat (whatever is available in your area)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
I a mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese, mayonnaise and sour cream until smooth. Stir in 3/4 of the green onion. Stir in half of the mozzarella and 1/2 of the parmesan cheese. Add in the hot sauce, cayenne pepper, garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce. Add the crab meat last. If you use canned crab meat, drain it really well. If you are using fresh lump crab meat, break it up just a bit. Pour this into a 2 quart baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. Top with the other half of the parmesan cheese and the other half of the mozzarella cheese.
Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes or until the top is just browning and bubbly. Wait about 5 -10 minutes before serving. This allows it to set up a little. Sprinkle the top with the rest of the green onions. I like it served on buttery crackers. I will warn, this is a bit addictive!
