Warm Crab Artichoke Dip

A Perfect Appetizer
My favorite appetizer to serve when entertaining has to be Warm Crab Artichoke DipThis appetizer can be elegant or casual, as it fits into your menu theme and gathering.

Make Ahead
Wonderful for any occasion, easy to make and my favorite part is that it can be made a day ahead. How nice it is to have a fancy appetizer already made and ready to go in the oven before guests arrive.

Just The Right Blend
This dip is creamy, rich and delicious with savory artichokes, cheeses and the sweetness of crab. Warm Crab Artichoke Dip can be served with a variety of dippers such as toasted baguette slices, crackers or raw veggies.

Casual or Elegant
Serves up nicely in a favorite classic baking dish or colorful pie plate to go from oven to table.


2 (8 oz) pkg. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sour cream
3 tbls. mayonnaise
2 tbls. milk
1 tbls. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. dry mustard
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup chopped marinated artichoke hearts
1 lb. refrigerated crabmeat (shells removed)
1 tbls. Old Bay seasoning (optional) Chopped parsley

 Old Bay Seasoning for Seafood, Poultry, Salads & Meats, 6-Ounce Canister
Old Bay is may favorite seasoning. It adds just the right flavor to my Warm Crab Artichoke Dip. If you can't find it at your local grocery store, Amazon has it.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prepare a 2 qt. baking dish with cooking spray or butter.
In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese, sour cream, mayo, milk, worcestershire sauce, mustard and garlic powder.
Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheddar cheese.
Fold in artichokes and crabmeat. Add Old Bay, if desired.
Spread mixture in baking dish and top with remaining 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (refrigerate if making ahead).
Bake for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
Serve with assorted breads or crackers.
