Baked Crab Dip

This recipe will amaze you. It can also be served as a rich side dish as well. I prefer to use it as an appetizer, however. Enjoy!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This crab dip is packed full of sweet lumps of crab and lots of fresh vegetables. The breadcrumbs and veggies don't overpower the dish and let the crab meat shine. You can serve this at a very casual get-together or a more formal dinner. It was very good with the Ritz crackers, but would make a delicious side too. It's very rich and very good.

Note: We used Italian breadcrumbs.


1 1/2 stick
2 c

white onion - chopped
2 c
bell pepper - chopped
1 can(s)
cream of mushroom soup
2 c
