Maryland Crab Dip

We made this Maryland Crab Dip for last year’s Super Bowl game in honor of the Baltimore Ravens.  It went great with our Cheesy Garlic & Herb Pull-Apart Bread made from a nice sourdough loaf in honor of the San Francisco 49ers.

When I posted the pull apart bread recipe on Facebook last night, the crowd went wild…..for the Maryland Crab Dip :)  So I got up this morning and made it just for you.

I made it for you, however my low-carb eating friends are going to be quite happy to find out it’s all for them.  This dip is super easy to make and is delicious served with crackers or celery sticks or cheesy pull apart bread.  Enjoy.
