Bean Pot Maryland Crab Dip

Print Friendly
1 lb lump Crab Meat or 1 lb Backfin Crab Meat
2 -4 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
8 ounces cream cheese
8 ounces sour cream
8 ounces mayonnaise
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon dry mustard
1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

2 tablespoons milk, for moistening

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature and soften.
In a large mixing bowl, combine softened cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, ¾ cup of the cheddar cheese, and the mozzarella cheese.
Add Old Bay seasoning to taste (use at least 2 Tbsp) and mix until all is evenly mixed (hand mixing works best).
Carefully blend in crab meat so as not to break up the lumps. Add milk to loosen and make mixing easier.
Pour mixture into a lightly greased Bean Pot.  Sprinkle with remaining cheddar cheese and top with Old Bay to Taste.
Bake at 350 degrees until top is golden brown and bubbling (time varies, usually 30-45 minutes).
