Baked Crab & Artichoke Dip

‘Tis the season for dips!
I don’t know about you…but I can make a meal out of a dip.  In fact, my favorite holiday parties to attend are the ones that serve heavy appetizers and dips in lieu of something more main course-y.
My Baked Crab & Artichoke Dip is just what you need for your holiday parties…or for you plain old Thursdays.  You’ll love it!
This dip fits a 9″ pie plate.
 
Shopping List
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup mayonnaise
3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
1 (14 oz) can of quartered artichoke hearts, drained
2 cups lump crab meat
1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
about 8 chopped green onions
about 3 cups of crushed Ritz crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (I used Pam) a 9″ pie plate.  Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat with an electric mixer your cream cheese and mayo.  Stir in the chopped garlic, artichoke hearts, crab meat, Parmesan and green onions.  Spread this mixture down into your pie plate.  Top dip with crushed Ritz crackers.
Pop the pie plate in the oven and bake about 25 minutes.  The crackers will be golden brown and everything should be bubbly.
Remove from oven and serve immediately with your favorite dipping veggies, tortilla chips or crackers.
This will be a hit at any holiday get together!

    This sounds like it will be a hit at my parties! Did you buy frozen crab meat?

  • Mommy H December 3, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    yes, we love this casserole!! I too was skeptical, but when you marry the hubs you marry the fam, and its tradition with my inlaws. You can't have a holiday without a pineapple bake.

    I think I'm going to make this Saturday for Game day! Did you use frozen crab meat?

    • Mix and Match Mama December 4, 2015 at 10:55 am

      I used fresh but you could use canned too!

  • Niccole Tapp December 4, 2015 at 4:42 am

    This actually looks delicious.. I definitely want some and I am definitely going to be making this in the near future.

  • Laurie Birt December 4, 2015 at 3:59 pm

    Do you freshly grated parmesan or in the plastic tube? Thanks

  • Monique December 4, 2015 at 4:35 pm

    Neeed a new crab option! Looks delish! Thanks!

  • Beth C December 5, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    Could this be made the night before, stuck in the fridge, & then baked the following day? Maybe put the ritz crackers on the day of baking?

    If I can't use crab (allergies!) would I have to reduce other ingredients or add in something else? ideas? It looks so yummy!

    • Mix and Match Mama December 6, 2015 at 11:03 am

      I would add a box of frozen spinach (defrosted and all of the excess water squeezed out). Enjoy!
