Big game day weekend! The kickoff of the NFL season really starts the transition to autumn for me. I manage to miss most of the beginning of the season as the SOWA Market is a Sunday and runs through October but, let's be honest, I'm not really watching the game anyways. I am enjoying the football get togethers and, mostly, all the snacks. This season, I'm going to layoff the Buffalo Chicken Dip and add a coastal flare to my pot luck offerings. First up:
Old Bay Hot Crab Dip
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1 pound lump crabmeat
1 pound shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste
optional: 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1. Prehead oven to 350F. Mix cream cheese, mayonnaise, Old Bay Seasoning and ground mustard in medium bowl until well blended. Add crabmeat; toss gently. Season with salt and peppers.
2. Spread in shallow 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and additional Old Bay Seasoning, if desired.
3. Bake 30 minutes or until hot and bubbly. Serve with assorted crackers and sliced French bread.
