This spread/dip would be a welcome addition to any gathering. Seafood spreads are among my favorite appetizer choices.
My imagination is going wild with the possibilities for this recipe. After the recipe, you will find some serving suggestions from Mr. Food, however, I have a few of my own. How about finger sandwiches made with this crab spread? The thought of using this spread in a fried grouper sandwich instead of tartar sauce is making my mouth water. I must try that!
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 pound imitation crabmeat, flaked
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients; mix well.
Spoon mixture into a 9-inch pie plate and bake 25 to 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
Serve this up with crackers, or with homemade pita chips that you can make simply by cutting medium pitas into 8 wedges each; separate the halves, and bake on a baking sheet in a preheated 350°F oven until golden and crisp.
