Hot Crab Dip

I was looking through my old recipes & came across this tasty crab dip we'd forgotten all about. Naturally I had to make it right away! This warm, cheesy dip is perfect for a party or a cold winter night.

Hot Crab Dip  

2 can (12 oz.) crab (or 1 cup fresh, chopped & shredded)
½ Tbsp. lemon juice
8 oz. cream cheese (regular or reduced fat)
¼ cup mayonnaise (light is fine, not Miracle Whip)
½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp. minced garlic (6 cloves)
¼ cup chopped green onions
⅛ tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1) Preheat oven to 350 F.

2) Combine the crab and lemon juice in a large bowl, then stir in the remaining ingredients. Mix well and spread in a medium casserole dish (the picture shows a half batch in a small dish).

3) Bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and bubbly. Serve with crositinis, bagel chips, or crackers.
