Are you always looking for a great dip for the summer, or maybe the perfect dip for your Tailgate? This Crab Cake Dip is the perfect alternative to cheese dip and is super creamy and bursting with flavor.
This is one of the three different recipes I created from my Easy Crab Cake recipe. You can see that recipe here.
I love eating anything seafood dip with wheat thins. But I found these bruschetta chips at a Publix at the beach that were amazing! If you have these at your store… you need to buy them, make this Crab Cake Dip, and enjoy it!
I used a lump crab meat for this dip, but sometimes it gets expensive. Even the $2-$3 crab in a can (where tuna fish is) is tasty. Because you mix the crab with different cheeses and crisp Ritz Crackers on the top – you can get away with a lesser quality or thinner crab meat.
Pro Tip: Make this ahead of time and keep it in the fridge and toast up int he oven or microwave. OR put it in a crock pot and keep it warm at the tailgate! Either way – this Crab Cake Dip a perfect party dip!Print
