Here’s an oldie but a goodie! It is not an original by me, but it is something I make often this time of year to share with visiting friends. It never fails to please! Try it and let us know what you think!
Here’s a question, an afterthought, for you: do you think this could be made using canned tuna, in the absence of having crab on hand? I may try it one day.
1 pound Crabmeat
1 package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon Ground Mustard
1/4 cup cheddar cheese shredded
Crackers or sliced French Bread
Preheat oven to 350° F.
In a medium bowl mix cream cheese, mayo, Old Bay, and ground mustard until well blended.
Add crabmeat and toss gently.
Spread in a 9-inch pie plate.
Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and additional Old Bay.
Bake 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with crackers or sliced French bread.
