Hot Crab Dip

Hot Crab Dip


In San Diego, Rob and I would have dinner parties with our friends Ruth and Ryan. I always looked forward to our gatherings to spend time with them and to try the new dishes Ruth would make. One appetizer she made for us was Hot Crab Dip. I am certain we all were full on this delicious appetizer before the main meal was ready!

This appetizer is best served warm with crackers, sliced French bread, or toast points.
