Baked Cream Cheese Crab Dip

I always find myself looking for something quick to grab and snack on. Unfortunately, anything good will take time to make, and if I ate anything frozen, somewhere on the planet, a kitten might be sacrificed.

This crab dip recipe I'm about to share solves those problems! I usually make two or three at a time and refrigerate or freeze them
(worst case) before they're baked.

  • Cream Cheese (8oz package will suffice, let it warm to room temp)
  • Onion (2 tbsp, chopped)
  • Salt
  • Crab Meat (1 can)
  • Horseradish (1 tsp.)
  • White Wine / Cooking Sherry (2 tbsp.)
  1. Mix.
  2. Bake at 325F for 15 minutes.
  3. Garnish with any available spices, parsley, bay leaves, paprika, etc.
Awesome eh? I like to toast pita bread until it just gets crispy, and serve those with it. Otherwise, get some thick restaurant tortillas, and bake them in the oven for 5 minutes along with the dip.


  1. Oh my goodness, this sounds completely and utterly delicious. I love dips. Pita + Dip = I consume it all...to myself.

  2. My favorite recipe! Aren't you glad I shared it?!
