Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay is known for crabs, and they’re a big favorite of ours. When fresh crabmeat is available, we’ll use it in this dip, but canned works just as well. This appetizer is nice for any holiday or gathering.

"This was good but a little bland....My husband and I added some Hot sauce and shreaded parmesean cheese. This gave it just the right flavoring."
