Maryland Crab Dip Crostini
Classic Maryland crab dip is welcome at ANY party, but we gave it a little classing up for our Holiday spread. The dip is spooned on crostini, then topped with cheese and baked. The perfect combo in each bite!
Ingredients1 baguette, thinly sliced (24 slices)
¼ cup olive oil
½ package (4oz) cream cheese
½ cup Tessemae's Avocado Ranch
1 teaspoons Old Bay seasoning
3/4 cup shredded white cheddar cheese
8 oz lump blue crab meat
- Heat oven to 400°. Divide bread slices between 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Brush tops lightly with oil. Bake until crisp and very light brown, about 4 minutes.
- In a medium bowl, stir together cream cheese, Avocado Ranch, Old Bay, and ¼ cup cheese until uniform in color. Gently fold in crab.
- Divide dip between toasted baguette sliced, about 1 rounded tablespoon per slice. Sprinkle with cheese.
- Bake until cheese is melted and crab is heated through, 5-8 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
Make ahead tip: To keep hot for your party. Keep dip refrigerated and toasted crostini at room temp. Bake in batches of 12 or so.
