Kristin's Crabmeat Casserole

Leftover crabs never go to waste around here. Last week's unfinished haul was picked and recycled for my much used "Kristin's Crab Meat Casserole" recipe...

1 lb backfin crab meat
2 pkgs Philadelphia Cream Cheese, room temperature
8 oz sour cream
4 tablespoons mayo
juice of 1/2 of lemon
2-3 shakes Worcestershire Sauce
1 teaspoon Colman's Dry Mustard
3 shakes garlic salt
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 1/4 reserved for topping
Paprika

Preheat oven to 325°. Mix all ingredients minus the crab meat, 1/4 cup of the reserved grated cheddar and Paprika.

Gently fold in the crab meat.

Place in a casserole dish and top with remaining grated cheddar then sprinkle with Paprika. Bake at 325° for 30 minutes.

Serve with your favorite cracker or a nice crusty french bread. Seriously, just a spoon'll do ya...

Kindness of Kristin Insley for the delish Crab Meat Casserole recipe ohhh sooo many years ago. It was theee chafing-dish all the pretty girls could be found around at any proper Eastern Shore party...XXOO

  11. There aren't many things better than a hot crab dip! This recipe sounds delish, will have to try! :-) Provided I can find crabmeat....oil spill has made finding fresh, quality seafood a bit like going on a scavenger hunt! XOXO

  15. If you are not lucky enough to have the crab fest first, you can get all you need at the market. My wife has been making this great treat for years now. Lump and Back fin from the local market will do. Not as much fun as the boil first but then again, no messy picking.
