I honestly can not remember where this recipe came from, it was at some party or event I was at many years ago and it was the smash hit of the appetizer table. It is very simple to do and is a easy potluck or party dish. I have had fun with this shaping it into stars, Christmas trees where i sliced pimento stuffed olives and use them as "ornaments", or just as a round. Have fun with it and do a little people watching as they try and figure out whats in it.

Ingredients

1 lb
cream cheese, room temperature
2 can(s)
crabmeat,drained
1/4 c
worcestershire sauce
1 bottle
seafood cocktail sauce
1 box
ritz crackers

Directions Step-By-Step

1
mix together cream cheese, drained crab, and worcestershire sauce. I use the block cream cheese. mixing can be a chore using hand utensils so I just get in and use my fingers to get a good mix
2
put mixture on plate or tray for serving and shape it into whatever fun shape you choose. just a plain round is easiest. I leave the mixture about 1 inch or a little more thick on the plate
3
pour bottle of seafood cocktail sauce completely over top ( if you have it available in your area the Beaver Brand out of Oregon is one of the best I've had ). Garnish as you choose, parsley always looks nice, sliced olives, you pick
4
serve with Ritz crackers for scooping and watch people try and figure out the ingredients
