Crab Dip Do-Over.

During happy hour at Virginia's on the Bay* in Texas, the table shared crab dip. Honestly, the appetizer was so-so and found myself craving something so much better. So as soon as I got home, I couldn't wait to try a new version and this time I wasn't left disappointed.

*While Virginia's crab dip left little to be desired it's  the perfect spot for drinks while watching the sunset.

11oz softened cream cheese
1 small finely chopped onion
5 tbsp mayonnaise
1lb fresh crab meat
Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the cream cheese, onion, mayonnaise, crab meat, garlic powder, salt & pepper. Spread mixture into a 1 quart baking dish and bake for 20 minutes. Remove crab dip from the oven and stir well and spoon into hollowed out bread bowl. Place bread bowl and chunks of bread on a medium baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes. Serve hot (I like to add a little cocktail sauce too)
