This was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO good! The only difference I did was put in 4 tbsp of mayo and 2 cloves of garlic (minced). I used medium cheddar cheese in my recipe also. I will definetely make this crab dip from now on, this is the 3rd one I've tried off of allrecipes.com and it's been the best.

This is the only crab dip I have found that is some what similar to mine. My measurements differ and has some additions. Everyone goes nuts over this: 1 small can crab meat drained, 1- 8oz. pkg. cream cheese softened, 1 c. mayonaise.( I think you could cut that in half if fat conscious, but I don't think it would be as creamy.) Can add 1/2 cup minced onion, but I never do. Also, 1 T.lemon juice, 1/2 c. grated cheddar, 1/4 tsp. dry mustard, 1 tsp. worcestershire sauce. Mix all together into pie plate. Bake 350 for 30 min. You can also use 1-6oz. pkg. frozen crab meat thawed in place of canned. You can also add a can of tiny shrimp or sprinkle slivered almonds on top before baking. Serve with a nice butter cracker for spreading. This is our favorite crab dip made this way. I gave it 5 stars cuz it is similar to this dip with some changes. Thanks!

I've made this recipe twice so far to many great reviews. Although I did make a few changes. I followed a few suggestions that I had read before. I only used half of the amount of cream cheese (this happened the first time because I didn't have enough)and half the amount of cheddar cheese. Instead of paprika and hot sauce I used about 1.5 - 2 tsp Old Bay seasoning. Then I seerved it up with tortilla chips.

Made as is, it's average. It's fast, easy, and looks nice, but if you want something with more flavor you need to add more to it. First I think it could use more crab, and then add other ingrediants such as: garlic, artichoke hearts, green onions, diced green chilies, parmesan, and/or pimentos.

It was a good recipe (did it for 10 servings) But, I took the advice of previous reviewers and added 2 cloves of minced Garlic (instead of hot sauce), 1 tsp. Old Bay seasoning (replacing dried mustard), added one can of tiny Shrimp, I used 2% Milk colby/Jack cheese (it melts better than cheddar) putting some on top and used 1 cup of Mayo. I did however substituted Lite Mayo and Lite Cream Cheese cutting the calories. It was delicious, and everyone loved it. It's good with tollhouse crackers and tortilla chips.

I'm writing to tell anyone who's considering making this dip DON'T DO IT! It smelled awful while it was baking which should have been my first clue. Even the cat didn't come around the kitchen. I had to work Christmas and this was going to be my contribution for our unit's party. I was hesitant but I hoped the dip would taste better than it smelled. Where I work the doctors and nurses would probably eat a bowl filled with grass clippings and twigs if you put salad dressing on it. No one touched this stuff... What a waste of some expensive ingredients. I'm only giving this one star because I can't give it ZERO.

I hate when people change a recipe and then rate it but I must admit I did it myself this time. I used lump crab instead of canned, doulbed the cheese, 1 cup shredded chedder and 1 cup shredded white chedder and used 1 cup mayo and it was fantastic. I made it for the hubby's 50th Birthday party and it was nothing less then a hugh hit. To the person that rated it 1 star and said it smelled terrible while cooking you must not be a seafood lover because it smells just like it should.

Addictive. Best dip I have ever eaten, and I do not really even like crab. Make sure to use sharp cheddar and a bit more hot sauce than the recipe listed. If you use mild cheddar, the dip will not have enough flavor. I also used imitation crab meat.

2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese softened 4 tablespoons mayonnaise 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese 2 (6 ounce) cans crabmeat 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons hot sauce 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce paprika for garnish It was very good my only problem was the amount of cream cheese. It seemed that's all you could taste.. Put me off cream cheese for a couple days:( The only things I did different were I used fresh crab meat and instead of paprika I used old bay's (which was really good!) And I ate most of the dip so it couldn't have been that bad;)
