Hot Crab Dip

Print PrintShare with Friends


I was born in Maryland, and crab dip was served at all family functions since as long as I can remember. No "true" Baltimore native can NOT have a good recipe for crab dip. (It can be made using "low fat" sour cream, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese, but I always make this for parties, so I go for the full blown)!
