    Here's a dip that is a must at our family get togethers and I thought I would share. It is great with cocktails. We serve it on french bread but if you are low carbing it will work on cucumber slices.

    1 can of crab meat, picked through for shells or shrimp (I rinse the shrimp if canned, chop them if they are fresh)
    8 oz block of cream cheese - low fat is fine but not non-fat as it tastes like plastic
    old bay seasoning to taste - 1 tsp or more
    1/2 tsp worcestershire sauce
    1 clove garlic grated in w microplane or chopped really fine
    grated onion or onion flakes - 1 T
    1 tsp lemon juice (optional)
    parmesan cheese - 1/4 c, more or less to taste
    salt & black pepper to taste

    you can add 2T of mayo but I leave it out as I dont care for it.

    Bake at 375* for 25-30 minutes until brown and bubbly

    This sounds sinful. :biggrin:

    What size is the can of crabmeat?

    I am so bad at this - the same size as a tunafish can - 6 or 7 oz, I think? - you can use a bigger or smaller can with this dip - very forgiving. It's a add to taste, stir, bake and enjoy kind of recipe. I can never make enough of this when the family is here.

    I hope you will try it and let me know if you like it!

    Thanks for getting back with me. I think I will make this for Valentines dinner as an appetizer. I will let you know how quickly it disappears. :biggrin:
