The Hungry Elephant

If you haven’t ever had the Lobster and Crab dip from Jack Astor’s (in Canada), you’re missing out. It’s the best I’ve ever had.. It’s perfect for appetizers and dinner parties!

The only downside – we’ll there’s two. 1. it’s so damn good you cant put it down. 2. it’s highly fattening. I used ‘light’ products when I made mine and it was STILL good.

Although this is a copycat lobster and crab dip, I did NOT use lobster. If you’d like to add that in, feel free to add roughly 1/3 cup steamed lobster (meat). However, it tastes pretty identical to the one from JA’s.

What you’ll need:

Lobster and crab Dip


  • 8oz of plain cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 120g (1 can) of canned crab
  • pinch of pepper, parsley & oregeno


  1. Heat cream cheese in a pan on LOW..
  2. Add in minced garlic, mushrroms, cheese, and herbs.
  3. Mix & stir in cheese & crab
  4. Pour the mix into a small oven safe dish
  5. Bake for 15-18 minutes at 350
  6. VOILA!

      Hi Eleanor! Thank you for the comment. The recipe is a “copycat” and not made exactly like the recipe at Jack Astors. However it tastes exactly like it, even though it doesn’t have lobster. I’ll update my recipe to clarify but you can always add some steamed lobster meat when you add in the crab! Sorry for the confusion!
