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 was bland to me.
There are better ways to use crabmeat.
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.
