  • crab


  1. 1 pound crabmeat
  2. 1 block cream cheese
  3. 2-3 tablespoons light mayo
  4. cooking sherry
  5. 1 small onion- tiny diced
  6. 1/2 red pepper-tiny diced
  7. jalaepenos in a jar
  8. old bay to taste
  9. lemon jiuce
  10. butter or margerine- 1 tablespoon, or some spray stuff...
  11. garlic powder (optional)
  12. chhese to melt on top
  13. hot sauce.
  14. preheat over to about 375. soften cream cheese- leave out for a bit or low microwave it. put it in a bowl. ok, so chop up veggies (Onions, pepper, jalapeno) and saute over medium/high heat in the cooking sherry and a little bit of butter or margerine. then pour that over the cream cheese in the bowl. next. add a few tablespoons of mayo to make the texture smoother. add hot sauce and old bay to taste. i like to make it so the mix looks a little orange. you can add a shake of garlic powder, but it's not necessary. mix all up until a smooth texture. next pour your crabmeat overtop of mixture (before doing this sort through to pull out shells). put some lemon juice on the crabmeat (not a big deal if you forget). then fold the crabmeat into the mix so that it is evenly distributed. bake until bubbly- depending on your dish 15-25 minutes. then top in cheese, sprinkle some old bay on top, and put back in for a few minutes to melt. great with baguette, tostitos, a spoon.....
