Hot crab dip

Lynnda Cloutier


this dip is best eaten warm, so bake it just before serving. Both fresh and pasteurized crabmeat will work well in this recipe but don't use canned crabmeat. Serve with toast points for your favorite crackers. To make ahead, the unbaked dip can be wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerated for up to one day; microwave on high until bubbling around edges, 1 to 2 minutes and stir before baking.Source: from an old library book
