When we lived in Maryland we fell in love with all things crab and Old Bay. It's funny how different places put importance on different things. In Maryland, Old Bay seasoning is equivalent to salt and pepper. 
One of our favorite crab dishes is Hot Crab Dip. It's on practically every menu at every restaurant, just as we're finding here in coastal North Carolina. 

Sometimes we make crap dip for din and that's all we eat, kind of like our cheese plate dins. Today we're making it for our grill out with friends. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. 

Hot Crab Dip
1 (8 oz) pkg 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese, softened
1 (8 oz) container Sour Cream
4 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
2 Garlic Cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon Worshershire Sauce
1-1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 Dried Mustard
A few dashes of Hot Sauce
16 oz Crab Meat, drained well
3/4 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8 baking dish. 
Mix cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, Worshershire sauce, dried mustard, hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning in a bowl. Gently fold in crab meat. 
Pour into greased baking dish, top with remaining cheddar cheese and bake for 25 minutes or until heated through. 
Serve with tortilla chips, crackers, pretzels or baguette slices. 

Happy Memorial Weekend!!!
