  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the cream cheese, milk, mayonnaise, horseradish, crab meat and Old Bay Seasoning (TM). Mix until creamy. Spread mixture into an 8x12 inch baking dish, and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 to 40 minutes.
  3. Cut a circle out of the top of the bread and scoop out the inside. Tear the inside into pieces for dipping.
  4. Remove mixture from oven and spoon into hollowed bread. Cover the top with the shredded cheese and more seasoning. Place the bread bowl on a medium baking sheet, and bake in the preheated oven 45 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Serve hot with bread pieces on the side.

Made this yesterday for a party and EVERYONE asked for the recipe! Made a few changes: used imitation crab meat (3/4 pound) that I flaked. For the money, a good decision. Also added a full te...

This recipe is good... a few changes can make it even better. It is somewhat runny, so i put in less milk. Also, adding garlic salt or powder adds to the flavor since - although it is delicious ...

I found this dish to be bland. May try it again, using less milk, more crab, and adding some spices. It also needs more color.
