Old Bay Hot Crab Dip

June 29, 2020

Two summers ago, we visited the port town of Lunenberg, Nova Scotia. After a day of traveling, we decided to treat ourselves to dinner at a waterfront restaurant. It was there that I had the best hot crab dip that I have ever eaten! The sliced baguette that they served with it was the perfect bed for this delicious, bubbly crab dip! We ordered seconds and couldn't get enough of it! So when we got home, I had to try and make it. We now love this recipe! The best part is that it is made using inexpensive cans of white crab meat that I always keep in my pantry. They topped theirs with paprika but of course this Maryland Blue Crab loving household loves their Old Bay Seasoning. To us crabs and Old Bay are a match made in heaven! Adding the Old Bay made this hot crab dip even better!
