Very good! Due to family food allergies, I had to find a recipe without the usual seafood seasoning or Worcestershire sauce, and this fit the bill. I doubled the recipe and it was perfect for a small Christmas Eve gathering. Has a slight sweetness to it, which is different. Everyone loved it and I will make it again!

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.

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.
