Surprised by the mixed reviews. Its a good recipe. It will go over well at a potluck. No it's not superb gourmet dish but it serves it's purpose as an appetizer. Imitation crab is fine if you don't want to spare the expense.

This crab dip was so delicious. I served it at our Christmas party and a number of my guests asked for the recipe. An added bonus - it was easy to make!

I didn't care for this dip very much at all. I do believe it has potential, but I did not care for the recipe as is. The dip came out too much for my taste. I will change a few things before attempting this recipe again.

Simple, easy and delicious (even rewarms well). As I had no fresh crab meat on hand, I substituted with canned lump white (8 oz.). I served the dip with tortilla chips (to a group of young adults) along with a spread of other homemade appetizers. This was by far the favorite (though the won tons were a close second) and the easiest to prepare.
