Reviews for Slow Cooker Hot Crab Dip
"I added some extra garlic and it was really yummy. I served it with crusty bread, was much better with bread than crackers."
"Not a fan and neither was anyone else. I followed recipe, and it was NOT good. I would even go as far to say gross. Would not recommend."
"This tasty dip is so easy to make and tastes amazing! I halved the recipe and baked it at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Adding a few chopped green onions lends a little splash of color to this great appetizer!"
"Halved the recipe and made it on the stove. I needed to add a couple splashes of Worcestershire sauce to bring out any flavor. I still think the one in Joy of Cooking is better."
"Great recipe. I suggest adding at least two cans of crab or even more."
"Heavenly! i doubled the crabmeat in this recipe."
"A big hit at Christmas!!"
"I made the Hot Crab Dip for a Scrapbooking Event & I doubled the recipe and left some at home for my Dad & Husband. Everyone Loved It!! It was Delicious!! Super Easy to Make. I look forward to making it again!! =)"
"We had friends over for appetizers last night and I tried this recipe out on them. They loved it. It was easy and I had all of the ingredients on hand. Guests thought I had worked hard on this. I had to 'fess up and tell them how easy it was. I did use Vadalia onion and onion taste was not overpowering. Regular onion might change the flavor slightly."
"This one is a keeper! Easy, quick, and great for unexpected entertaining."
