Crab dip, not-too-much guilt

Submitted by: SEAGIRLRUN

Introduction

This is our friend Bo's Crab Dip recipe, but I've modified it to have slightly less guilt associated with eating it!

Normally, you would top with slivered almonds, but I left them off the recipe so you could calculate for your own tracker!

Also, you can use lowfat cream cheese for only 49 calories per serving if you want a little closer to the full fat authentic flavor!

Ingredients

    *Phillip's Lump crab meat, 8 oz (remove)
    Fat Free cream cheese, 16 tbsp, whipped (remove)
    Onions, raw, .125 cup, chopped (remove)
    Sherry, dry, 1 fl. oz (remove)
    Paprika, .5 tsp (remove)
    *Horseradish, .5 tsp (remove)
    Milk, 2%, .062 cup (remove)

Directions

Allow cream cheese to soften at room temperature for 30 minutes. With a fork, blend the cream cheese and the rest of the ingredients together except paprika and almonds. DON’T use a blender or food processor – the old fashioned way is best.) Place in a small, lightly butter sprayed baking dish. Top with the almonds and a sprinkling of paprika. Bake 15 min. at 375 degrees.

Bo's observations/variations:
"I like to make a double batch. I used a can of lump crab meat and broke it up and then added 2 fake crab legs (I suppose you could use all the fake crab [surimi] if you wanted, but I think 50% real crab worked out well).

Also used about 1 ½ shot glasses of sherry, and used smoked paprika which seemed to also work well. Didn’t use any almonds, though, and didn’t butter the casserole dish. Not a trace of mayo was used. I liked to use heavy cream instead of milk. "
