Here in Maryland, we do crab everything. A party favorite is this super creamy hot and cheesy crab dip. I mean, yum…
This dish is a big hit during the holiday party season. You can serve it with crackers, baguette slices, tortilla chips, or even bake it right in a bread bowl.
Just about every Marylander has Old Bay stocked in their pantry. My grandparents (who have lived in Kentucky for almost 15 years now) have about 5 containers in theirs. That seems like a bit much to me, but who am I to judge?

In less than 5 minutes you can have this amazing crab dip in the oven.
Crab dip is a great way to use crab meat that you finished picking after you were done eating. After all, we don’t waste crab meat!
If you don’t have fresh-picked crab meat available, I’m sure you can find some at your seafood counter at the local grocery store.
