This amazing hot crab dip is super quick and easy and is a dorm friendly recipe too! Crab, cream cheese and Franks Wing Sauce is an amazing combination. A great appetizer or special treat at lunch time. Try this!
As I was perusing my vintage cookbook stash, a hot crab dip recipe jumped out at me and begged me to make it. Crab, cream cheese, scallions, soy sauce and Franks Wing Sauce is all I used. I was surprised at how easy and fast this recipe came together. Perfect for game day appetizers. This is a new back pocket recipe for me as it only has a few ingredients and comes together in only 5 minutes. With some crusty bread or melba rounds you have a wonderful appetizer or keep it all to yourself and have a decadent lunch.
I wanted my daughter to be able to make this in her dorm room so I made it in a microwave and a rice cooker. They both worked well but if you are entertaining, a rice cooker with its warm setting or a mini crockpot can be handy at keeping this little gem at the right temp. I also substituted the Worcestershire sauce for soy sauce so she wouldn’t have to go buy a bottle of this stuff. I think all college students have access to soy sauce packets.
This is very flexible, you can add your own personal touch like bamboo shoots, artichoke hearts, celery, cucumber, only limited to your imagination. If you do try this, let me know how it goes or tag us on Instagram #FusionCraftiness so we can see.
