Cheesy Crab Dip is warm, creamy and downright delicious! Lump crab meat is folded together with cream cheese, sour cream, zesty seasonings and topped with cheddar cheese. The result is a dip recipe that is bubbly, cheesy and loaded full of hearty crab flavors!


  • 16 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onion, chopped
  • 16 oz lump crab meat, drained


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth and creamy, about a couple minutes. Fold in the sour cream, 1/2 cup of the shredded cheddar, Worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, Old Bay Seasoning, salt, garlic and green onion until combined.
  2. Gently fold in the lump crab meat and spread the mixture into a 9×9 baking dish or a large pie dish. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of cheese.
  3. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, golden brown and bubbly. Serve with crackers, or bread, or tortilla chips. Enjoy!
