Delicious things are delicious! (Crabs: DO NOT READ THIS POST)

13 08 2009

In a desperate attempt to attract more readers (and to be silly with friends on other blogs), I am now writing up a recipe.

Yes, I’m putting it here, on a knitting blog.  Deal with it.  If you can’t deal with it, wash a needle really well and use it to stir.  I recommend using the 8mm or larger, 14″ if you’ve got it.

LopsyLi’s Delicious Crab Dip

  • 1 lb fresh (or fairly recently canned, but NOT frozen) crab meat
  • 8 oz cream cheese (yep, that’s the whole container), to room temp
  • 1/2 onion (more or less to taste.), grated or finely chopped
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (don’t sneak any before you start, or there won’t be enough!  Maybe you should get a second bag, just in case)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (that’s right, “mayo” has 2 Ns)
  • Tobasco sauce (to taste–taste-testing recommended)
  • Worcestershire sauce (to taste–taste-testing recommended)
  • Old Bay Seasoning (to taste–taste-testing recommended)
  • salt/pepper (to taste–taste-testing recommended)
  • your favorite spices/seasonings (to taste–taste-testing recommended)

Once the cream cheese is to room temp and any ice that mysteriously formed on your crab meat in the freezer is thawed, mix everything up in a big bowl.  Shoo cat frequently.  Put it back in the fridge for a while.  Devour with crackers.  Serves as many as you are actually willing to share with, up to about 5 or so.  I suggest having it between you and one very good friend, so you can do this two or three times.  But that’s just me.

Man, now I’m hungry again.

This is a fairly decent dorm recipe–all you need is the fridge space, a bowl, two forks (to mix with), and some kind of covering for the bowl.
