Game Day Feast: Hot Crabmeat Dip

January 28, 2013

What would a celebration be without the crabmeat dip? On our farm, there is no such thing! 

This a great way to have a taste of seafood without the sticker shock, and also a nice way to introduce seafood to party goers who may not get it that often. Take the work out of cleaning the crab by buying a can of it already cleaned and flaked. It's not that much money and one can makes the entire recipe. 

Be warned that this is a rich dish! Once you start eating it the richness doesn't catch up with you until later. So enjoy responsibly.
