Combine first 9 ingredients in a food processor; process until smooth.
Combine cottage cheese mixture, cream cheese, and onion in a large bowl; gently fold in crab. Place crab mixture in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan and breadcrumbs. Bake at 375° for 15 minutes or until lightly golden.
Sorry, but this recipe was just not for me.
It could have been cause i used "fake crab" or my choice of hot sauce... but i just don't think it's worth making again.
Pretty easy and cool to use cottage cheese, but still just anh.
Got several compliments at a get-together with friends. I used canned crab(three 6 oz cans). Next time I think I will try fresh lumped crab for a slightly different texture. The taste is good (not bland) but I might add just a bit more green onion next time and bit more hot sauce. I found that the cooking time was a bit short and it needed to sit for a few minutes before serving to allow time to set. I will make this again.
This recipe was very easy and excellent. You couldn't even tell it was light. I added a little extra green onions and hot sauce for flavor and used all canned crab. I will definitely be making this again.
I served this for Thanksgiving -- made this with only real crab and as the recipe states. Was really bland, so I added two seeded jalapenos and more than doubled the onion, a can of drained artichoke hearts and a bit more salt. Overall it got some compliments but I still wasn't happy with it. Needed more flavor. I"m sure some good cooks out there could figure out how to punch it up.
A very good dip! Didn't taste light at all, and was perfect with melba toasts and whole grain pita chips. Would be great for a holiday party appetizer. I used half lump crab and half white crab to cut costs. Tasted just as good. Step-by-step photos on my blog: http://tinyurl.com/264yysk
I made this for a graduation party. Everyone loved it and couldn't believe it was a cooking light recipe. I used can crab which worked out well -- tasty, easy and less expensive to make. I would make it again.
This was a big hit at my Golden Globes party, and I am doing it again for the Oscars. I used canned crab meat and that worked fine. I also liked a little extra hot sauce. One last suggestion is to add some grated white cheddar on top near the end!
really enjoyed this and got rave reviews from guests! i put 1/2 lb of "good" crab from the fish department and 1/2 lb of canned. i think it would have been fine (and a heck of a lot cheaper) with 1 lb of canned.
