Baked Crab Dip



The other day I was baking up a storm, and realized I had missed lunch completely! My house was over-run with sugar, so I was on the hunt for something on the savoury side.


I remembered this recipe (Baked Crab Ragoon) was sitting on my 'to-try' list after I had see it on mybakingaddiction.com.  My won ton wrappers were in the freezer, and I wanted something delicious asap, so I decided to bake up a dip instead!




This was not only ridiculously easy to make, but it was delicious! Such a perfect appetizer, snack, or in my case lunch! I cut up some corn tortillas and baked them to have something to dip with, and the worked perfectly.


I'm definitely making this again, and soon! 


Since I was home alone when I made this, I had quite a bit leftover.  This made an excellent toasted sandwich the next day with some lettuce, yum!




Baked Crab Dip

  • 1 can crab meat (about 6 oz)
  • 125 g cream cheese (1/2 a package) (I used light and it worked great)
  • 2 tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 2 tsp chopped green onion
  • pepper
  • smoked paprika
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F
  2. Drain the crab meat and roughly chop it up
  3. Place the crab meat, cream cheese, mayonnaise, hot sauce, chopped green onions, and some pepper in a bowl and mix well
  4. Place the dip in an oven-safe dish, and bake for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through
  5. Sprinkle with smoked paprika before serving
  6. Serve with crackers or chips to dip!
  7. Enjoy!
