Maryland Crab Dip


  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 1/4 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons Old Bay™ seasoning
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • hot sauce, optional, to taste
  • 1 pound fresh lump crab meat


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, using a handheld mixer or a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Using an electric mixer will ensure the smoothest texture.
  3. Add the mayonnaise, sour cream, 1 cup of cheese, ground mustard, Old Bay™ seasoning, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce.
  4. If using the hot sauce, taste for desired heat.
  5. Fold the crab meat into the mayonnaise mixture using a spoon or rubber spatula.
  6. Transfer the dip to a 9-inch baking pan, 9-inch pie dish, or 9-inch oven-safe skillet.
  7. Top the dip with the remaining cheese.
  8. Bake the dip until hot and bubbly around the edges, about 25 minutes.
  9. Serve warm.
