Maryland Crab Dip

Ever since going to school in Baltimore, I have come to love crab.  Here is an awesome recipe for any party that is a real crowd favorite.  You can even make this ahead and then just bake it the day you are serving it .Enjoy!

2 8-oz packages of cream cheese
1 cup sour cream
4 tsp mayonnaise
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 1/2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp mustard
2 tbsp milk
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 tsp Old Bay seasoning
1 pound blue crab meat (jumbo lump is actually not the best to use here, backfin or claw are the best to use)
crackers and bread for dipping

Always check for shells in your crab meat. 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Mix the cream cheese, sour cream, and mayonnaise together with an electric beater until they r completely mixed together.  Then add the lemon juice, Worchestershire Sauce, mustard, milk, and Old Bay seasoning.  Stir this together to combine.  Now stir in 3/4 of the cheddar cheese.  Gentley fold in your crab meat.  Place into a greased baking dish and top with the reserved cheddar cheese and sprinkle with a little more Old Bay on top.  If not eating today, place in the fridge until ready to bake.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes and serve with crackers and slices of bread.  Enjoy!
