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.

              I've been making this for Weddings and parties for years and its always a hit!
               One lb of fresh Claw crabmeat
               Five packs of creamcheese
               A cup of finely chopped onion
               Three cups of mayo
               As much Texas Pete as you like
              A little Old Bay and Parsley
              Mix all ingredients  together gently and bake at 375 till brown
              Serve on fresh GARLIC BREAD thats the trick!
