Hot Crab Dip

Are you looking for that *just right* something to serve as the prelude to a great pot of chili? This crab dip just might be it.

Crab Dip (from Allrecipes)volunteer firefighters in Colorado


         11 ounces cream cheese, softened

         1 small onion, finely chopped

         5 tablespoons mayonnaise

         2 (6 ounce) cans crabmeat, drained and flaked

         1/8 teaspoon garlic powder

         salt and pepper to taste

         1 (1 pound) loaf round, crusty Italian bread


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion, mayonnaise, crabmeat, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Spread mixture into a 1-quart baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven. While the dip is baking, cut a circle in the top of the bread, and scoop out the inside to create a bread bowl. Tear the removed bread into pieces for dipping.

Remove baked crab dip from the oven, and stir well. Spoon the mixture into the hollowed out loaf. Place bread bowl and chunks of bread on a medium baking sheet, and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot.
