Today, I'm reminiscing about the crockpot crab dip I made Christmas Eve.
Jacob and I decided to go back to Michigan to celebrate the holiday over the weekend prior to Christmas. We wanted to spend Christmas in Chicago, which is what we did. It was magical and perfect and everything I could've wanted.
We made a large Christmas Eve meal so we could enjoy the leftovers the next day and throughout the week. So far, that goal has been an easy one to accomplish.
I wanted to whip up a few appetizers that we could snack on prior to the big dinner, so I made deviled eggs, pickle rolls, brie, honey, and dried cranberries on baked baguette, and a crockpot crab dip.
Here's the super simple recipe you can get started, leave, and forget about while you work on all those other intensive holiday meal recipes.
Crockpot Crab Dip
What You Need
1 package of imitation crab, shredded and cut into small pieces
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise
seafood seasoning (amount isn't specific - I always add and mix till it looks and tastes right)
shredded cheddar cheese, for topping
club crackers, for serving
Put the imitation crab, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and seafood seasoning into the crockpot. Turn onto hot and let cook for an hour. After ingredients start to warm and melt, mix together. After 30 minutes of cooking, top with shredded cheddar cheese and let cook another 30 minutes.
Serve immediately with club crackers. Continuously devour and don't feel an ounce of guilt.
