The best keto 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!
Whenever I post this recipe, I always get questions like ‘but what can I dip it in?’… Well, ladies, gentleman, non-binary friends, I’ve perfected my keto (1-ingredient) tortilla chip, so these are what I would suggest for dipping. They are crispy and just the thing for dipping.
If you want to try something else, crispy bacon is also a good dipper, along with celery and carrots.
But – that’s pretty much it! This recipe is so easy!
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!
