  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Combine the cream cheese, milk, mayonnaise, horseradish, crab meat and Old Bay Seasoning ™. 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.

I am from maryland where we do seafood all the time. every other night we eat shrimp!! this recipe was basic and seemed bland so i changed it a bit. i doubled the cream cheese, used only 1 cup of milk, 2 cups of mayo, no horseradish, 16 ounces of crab, 3/4 tbsp of old bay, and almost 2 cups of cheese for the top. i didnt out it in the bread dish. i simply sliced up fresh french bread and we used that to "scoop" it up. i baked it in a 9x13 dish for about 40 minutes. it was excellent after the changes.....good luck!!



I found it to be "soupy" on my first attempt. I had only mixed the cream cheese, milk, and mayo so I tossed it. I started again and only used 1/2 c of milk (I figured I could add more if it needed it). I used 16 oz of claw meat which was 1/3 the price of backfin meat and I didn't have to pick shells out. It also added a pretty pinkish-orangish color that was perfect for my fall theme. I used quite a bit more of the Old Bay. I baked it in an oven dish and skipped the bread bowl and cheese. It looked beautiful when it was done. My guests devoured it and everyone asked for the recipe. Thanks Kristy!



awesome crab dip! i tried it in the bread bowl but liked it much better in a small crock pot because it stayed hot and the cheese stayed melted. i cut down the cost and used french bread loaf instead of the bread bowl. the loaf went a lot further.
