Pistachio Butter

recipe Detail


This is THE best hot crab dip. I'm going to show you how to make what I consider the king of the hot dips, which begins, like most baked dips, with cream cheese, but the key ingredients I use really amplify that crabby flavor. Use the best lump crab you can find—but whether your budget has room for the finest fresh crab or just allows for canned crab, this easy baked dip will still be a hit at your party.


- 1 lb crab meat

- 8 oz cream cheese

- 1/2 cup mayonnaise

- 1/2 cup sour cream

- 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

- 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

- 1/4 cup chopped green onions

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

- 1 tsp hot sauce

- 1 tsp dried parsley

- 1 tsp dried dill

- 1 tsp dried thyme

- 1 tsp dried basil

- 1 tbsp olive oil

- Salt and pepper, to taste


1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).


2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, sour cream, grated parmesan cheese, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped green onions, minced garlic, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, dried parsley, dried dill, dried thyme, and dried basil. Mix well until all ingredients are fully incorporated.


3. Gently fold in the crab meat, being careful not to break it up too much.


4. In a small baking dish, drizzle the olive oil to coat the bottom.


5. Pour the crab dip mixture into the baking dish, spreading it out evenly.


6. Season with salt and pepper to taste.


7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the dip is heated through.
