The best crab dip recipe I’ve ever made. If you don’t know how to make dip, this is probably the easiest appetizer recipe to start with.. It goes good for a regular family dinner, double date or dinner party!

Ok so, if you’ve ever been to Jack Astors (is that outside Canada?!), you may have had the Lobster and Crab dip. It only takes about 20 minutes and tastes exactly like the the dip at Jack Astors.

All you need is:

  • 1 can crab
  • 8oz cream cheese
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • dashes of: salt, pepper, oregano and parsley

To start, the best idea would be to warm up one packet (brick) of cream cheese. Heat that up in a pan. Stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn.

NEXT. Add in garlic, parsley, oregano and pepper. Keep on stirring. You can upgrade this dip too by adding bacon, hot peppers, sriracha.. whatever your heart desires!

Once the cheese has melted in and you’ve stirred in the herbs, time to add a TON of cheese… and I mean a TON. (I didn’t say this was healthy). I used probably 2 cups worth of shredded cheddar cheese. Stir that in.. It doesn’t have to melt, just mixed in.

Once all thats mixed in, add in the CRAB.

Put it in an oven safe pan. Top with MORE cheese and bake at 350 until the cheese is bubbling.

This is something you won’t regret. Seriously so good, especially if you are keto. This is one of the best keto dips I’ve tried to make!

      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!

      Hi Sam,

      I usually use celery, keto fathead crackers, bacon (the best), carrots (a few at a time, since carrots have a bit more carbs in them)..
