This is an all time favorite shared with many…grabbed originally in 2002 from the AOL Kraft Recipes site and has morphed into my own. I’m one of those that can’t really follow a recipe verbatim rather add my own touches otherwise it’s no fun! Hope you enjoy it!

  • 1 8 0z package of cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 cup minimum of parmesan cheese – grated or fresh
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped(optional)
  • 1/4 cup of mayo or miracle whip(MW is slightly sweeter)
  • 1/4 cup of white wine or apple juice(I cook with wine…sometimes I even add it to the recipe)
  • 2 tspns of sugar(lighter if you use miracle whip instead of mayo)
  • 1 tspn of ground mustard(don’t have ground ok to add regular mustard – go light!)
  • 1 tspn of garlic, chopped(don’t have chopped than use garlic spread)
  • 1 8 oz can of lump crabmeat(or more you can never have enough crab!)
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds(optional)

Directions – heat oven to 375. Mix all ingredients except crabmeat and almonds in medium bowl until well blended. Then stir in crabmeat. Spread mixture into ungreased pie plate 9 x 1 1/4 inches or shallow 1 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake uncovered 15-20 mins or until hot and bubbly. Serve with crackers – Enjoy!
