  • A food processor is going to give you the best texture for this creamy crab dip. If you don't have a food processor, you could use an electric mixer or a stand mixer instead. If you don't have either, just make sure that your cream cheese is at room temperature and then you can mix it by hand, although the texture won't be quite as smooth and creamy.
  • If you are serving this dip for a group, I recommend reserving a few lumps of crab meat to add to the top of the dip after it's baked. This gives guests a very clear visual idea of what's in the dip.
  • You can use an 8x8 or 9x9 inch baking dish for this recipe. I used the middle dish from this set of 3 baking dishes. Any shape/size baking dish that is on the smaller size will work well.
