  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese (softened)
  • 1/3 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice (preferably fresh or 1 teaspoon refrigerated)
  • 1 Teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning (or to taste as it can be salty if overused)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 16 Ounces Crab Meat (jumbo lump)
  • 1 Cup Cheddar Cheese (by volume, shredded)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, use a hand mixer or wooden spoon to combine the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, Worcestershire Sauce, lemon juice, Old Bay Seasoning, garlic powder, and paprika.
  • Fold in the crab meat and cheddar cheese.
  • Transfer the mixture to a small casserole dish (9 x 9-inch dish, 1.5 quart casserole dish, 9-inch pie pan, etc.). Use a spatula to spread into an even layer.
  • Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the dip is bubbly around the edges and melted in the center. Remove from the oven and serve hot with tortilla chips, toasted baguette slices, or veggie slices.
