Crab Dip

Hi My Aunt requested that I bring a crab dip or appetizer for Christmas Day.  What are some of your tried and true recipes?

    Blue Heaven, sorry this late. I make a shrimp mold usually at this time of year. Here is a similar recipe using crab meat. In the shrimp mold I use a can of tomato soup & a pound of chopped shrimp(sprinkled with Tony Chachere's) instead of the crab and cream of mushroom. I also add 1/3 cup chopped green pepper. It's always a big hit but I would like to try this version too. Let us know what you went with.


    Crab Mold
    8ounces cream cheese

    1/3 cup onion, minced

     1/3 cup fine chopped celery

     1 can cream of mushroom soup

     1 cup mayonnaise

     2 envelopes gelatin

     12 – 16 ounces  crabmeat

       
      [size=3 font="times new roman"]Preparation

      Warm soup. Add gelatin to soup. Stir until gelatin is dissolved. Combine with the other ingredients and mold until firm in a 4 c. mold. Serve with bread or crackers.

      I have a hot crab/shrimp dip that we really like - I serve it with toasted baguette slices rubbed with a little garlic / olive oil.
      1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
      1 small can artichoke hearts, coarsley chopped (optional)
      1/4 pound shrimp, cut in bite-size pieces
      1/4 pound crab meat, drained
      1 small onion, finely diced
      1/4 cup heavy cream
      1/8 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
      2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
      1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
      1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning salt
      Ground white pepper, to taste

      Mix all ingredients together and pour into a casserole dish.

      Bake uncovered at 350 degrees until bubbly, about 20-30 minutes.
