Delicious Hot Crab Dip

Hello!   Today I am going to feature a half eatten crab dip!  I know that is gross but after it was half eatten I thought, wow, this would be a wonderful thing to blog about cause of the Christmas season is upon us.  

The recipe was given to me years ago by a friend.  You MUST USE THE BEST CRAB YOU CAN AFFORD or it will taste fishy and not at all good - T R U S T   M E !

Hot Crab Dip -- makes 4 cups -- preheat oven to 325

16 oz softened cream cheese, 8 oz sour cream, 4 Tbls mayo, 1/2 tsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. dried mustard, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp salt.  Mix the above ingredients til smooth then add 1 pound of backfin highquality crab meat - folding the crab meat in as well as 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese.  Pour into a prepared 8 x 8 dish or a comparable size - bake for 45 minutes - remove then add the remaining 1/2 cheddar cheese and sprinkle paprika on top.  

You will definitely be invited back if you bring this along to the party!   We have a local Italian restaurant that puts this on top of a fresh Philly pretzel and tops it with the cheese then bakes it......
Y U M !

Again, sorry for the gross picture, be thankful my camera is not high quality!  hahahahahahaha

Until next time.....Trisha

Yes, I will have the nerve to share this recipe and picture at these parties!:
