Today is National Crab Meat Day! Although the recipe I am sharing in honor of this food holiday is made with imitation crab meat, it is a great dip to have for any sort of occasion. Also, I think imitation crab meat is delicious! If you want, you can use the real deal to make this dip, but if you want to save a few bucks, imitation works great. This Cheesy Baked Crab Dip is light, yummy, and perfect for dipping veggies and crackers. My family loved this dip and I know you will too!
Cheesy Baked Crab Dip (adapted from Taste of Home)
1 8 oz package light cream cheese
1 cup light sour cream
1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt (I used Chobani)
2 cups flaked imitation crab meat
5 green onions, thinly chopped
2 cups light cheddar cheese
2 round loaves of rye bread
1. Preheat oven to 350. Cut circles in the tops of the bread loaves and scoop out the insides. You can use these pieces to dip later!
2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, and yogurt. Mix in the crab meat, green onions, and cheese. Divide the dip among both bread bowls. If you have extra dip, you can simply place this in an oven safe dish.
3. Place the loaves in the oven for 45-50 minutes. Cheesy will be melted and the dip will be hot. Enjoy with the bread, other crackers, and veggies!
