    I haven't tried this yet but it sounds yummy. I will be going to a Chili party in a couple of weeks and I am trying to figure out how to keep it hot or cook it in a slow-cooker. Any ideas?

    Made this for Thanksgiving and it was a hit. Made the dip a day ahead, which was super easy, and baked it the day of as the recipe suggests. Everyone loved it, and the leftovers reheated very nicely. I used a mixture of lump and flaked crab to save some money, and it came out just fine. Would be great for a potluck or as a holiday appetizer.

    this was very bland and had the consistancy of cat food... not appetizing at all.

    I made this as Thanksgiving app and it was a big hit! I used canned crab meat to keep costs down. Trader Joe's usually sells this at a reasonable price. I didn't have panko, so I used crushed Ritz.

    This dip is delicious with the right amount of kick! My only problem with it is how expensive lump crab is. I think I will make this again using part crab and part mini-shrimps to make it more of a seafood dip and more affordable.

    My issue with the recipe is my own issue - i'm too cheap to get real crab so i used the fake crab. Which i would not recommend, or if you do, use the cheap stuff when you put it in the processor and the good stuff for leaving chunky. The cajun spice gave it a nice kick, but trying to spray the panko on top with pam made it spray all over! Don't think it helped anything! I thought the flavor was good, but the texture was definitely weird and the color... I did the like the option of making it the day prior, that helped with my party prep!
