The original recipe was given to us by our friend, Jack, and is one we have enjoyed many times over the years. Since we received it we have changed it up a bit, using Asiago cheese instead of Parmesan cheese and adding a bit of hot sauce, It is a great hot crab dip, simple to make, and perfect as a party appetizer. Or simply make it for yourself and family to enjoy.
2 - 8 z. cream cheese, softened
2 tsp. horseradish
1 cup shredded Asiago cheese (loosely packed, do not pack down)
1/2 tsp. hot sauce
12 oz crab meat
2 tbls. green onion, chopped/sliced (reserve a small amount for garnish if desired)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl; spoon into a oven safe baking dish. I like to use a small oval casserole dish for this.
Bake 25-30 minutes or until slightly browned and bubbly. Top with additional chopped/sliced green onion if desired.
Serve immediately with your favorite crackers, chips or raw veggies.
