If you are looking for a dip recipe that is sure to be an instant hit with the whole family, I have the perfect dip for you! This Cheesy Hot Crab Dip Recipe only takes a few minutes to put together, about 20 minutes in the oven, and that’s it! It’s perfect for the seafood lover in your life (in my life, that seafood lover is ME! haha) and it pairs perfectly with some crispy bagel chips, fresh veggies, or some pita bread. You can also really cut the cost down by using Krab instead of Crab, and honestly, it tastes just as good in my humble opinion. It makes a great side dish or appetizer for dinner time or if you just need a filling snack. Let’s check out how to make it shall we?

Instructions for making my Cheesy Hot Crab Dip Recipe
Step 1: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grab a mixing bowl and a baking dish.
Step 2: In a medium sized mixing bowl combine your crab meat, mayo, cream cheese, spices, 1/2 of your green onions and 1/2 of your cheese. Mix well until everything is combined.
Step 3: Spread your mixture into your baking dish and top with you remaining shredded cheese.
Step 4: Bake your dip at 350 degrees F for 20 minutes or until bubbly.
Step 5: Kick your oven to your boiler setting and broil until your cheese on top starts to get brown spots. Remove from oven.
Step 6: Let cool about 5 minutes because it will be VERY hot. Don’t burn your lips, it’s worth the wait, I promise!
