    Being a Maryland native, I’m usually cynical when I see the words crab dip. Yours looks good, though! A little Old Bay in there and it would be perfect! :)

    This is very good! I served it for dinner with toasted French bread and a side salad, and people asked for seconds. Thank you!

    Being from Maryland, Old Bay is no stranger. It can definitely add a zip to many recipes. Using it in the crab dip would be a personal choice and I would use it sparingly as it will easily overpower the taste and goodness of that lump crab!

    This dip looks fabulous! I love crab, and the ingredients you use in your recipe make it sound delicious. think I’ll be trying this soon. I just pinned it and tweeted it, too.

    This looks much easier to make than the crab dip recipe I have been using, and it is bound to be just (if not more!) delicious. How do you think it would taste to add a teaspoon or so of Old Bay seasoning? Thank you!
