Thanks for that info. But I don't have that option on my big oven anymore apparently. I even have it stored in my favs. And there nothing. Then looked it up in the glossary. And know luck there either.

I love it! I added old bay and parsley. Makes a big difference.

I've made this twice now, added a can of artichoke hearts (chopped), fresh backfin crab and some garlic powder. Served with tortilla chips. My husband loves it. I doubled it and took it to a Holiday party recently. I was asked for the recipe. ;) Thanks for sharing!

Very good! Def needs something extra to give it a bit of a kick and not be so bland. I ate it with garlic and chive crackers, which was excellent.

We loved this easy recipe. I would suggest softening the cream cheese first and mixing all ingredients before folding in the crab meat. Also you really need to add old bay. Thank you for the recipe!

This dip was amazing, I sprinkled a little old bay in the dip while mixing and it added a nice kick to it. Will definitely make again and again. I recommend some kind of bread to use for dipping.

Very good. I made the mistake of putting 16 oz of crab meat instead of 6 oz. But it was great. Looking forward to trying it again with less crab meat.

I made this for a party at work and everyone seemed to enjoy it! I liked how creamy it was, it needed a little something extra so I added some crazy salt, just for an extra flavor. It turned out good, I'll definitely make it for a party again!

I made this tonight and it was very good, I added 10oz of crabmeat as I wanted it thicker and creamier and added some old bay seasoning. Will definitely make again!

I doubled the crab, which made it richer. I also love using celery sticks. The dip is creamy, rich, and yummy!
