Crab Dip Recipe

  • Prep time:
  • Cook time:
  • Total time:
  • Yield: 6
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Recipe type: Appetizer


  • 1-8 ounce package of regular or reduced fat cream cheese-softened
  • 1-4.5 ounce can of lump crab meat-drained
  • 1-tablespoon of sweet onion – minced
  • ½ tablespoon of butter
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Melt the butter in a small pan over medium heat. Add in the onion and cook just until the onion is soft.
  3. In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and crab meat with a fork.
  4. Add the onion and the butter and season with salt and pepper to taste. Stir to combine.
  5. Place in an oven safe bowl and cook for about 25 minutes or until the top starts to slightly brown.
  6. Serve warm with crisp crackers, tortillas, toasted French or Italian bread or whatever you’d like!
  7. Note: Make ahead and reheat in the microwave. Store any unused portion in the refrigerator. It’s soo simple and has always been a crowd pleaser for me. I serve it all year round! It’s delish just the way it is, but I’ve added some Old Bay for a kick and other times a bit of nutmeg for a change. Make it your own! Enjoy!
